Today at the Lead Mines Valley Remembrance Sunday Service attended by the team, we met our long standing friend and supporter David Bisset.
Way back in August 2005, Iain Bisset whilst climbing with his father and fellow climber David Bisset, at Ousel’s Nest Quarry, Chapeltown, suffered injuries in a climbing accident, to which the team and the ambulance service were called.
Iain thankfully went on to make a full recovery, and went back to rock climbing at a high standard, and since this time has also travelled abroad extensively.
Since the accident, Iain, his family and particularly David his father, have become valued, stalwart and very much appreciated, regular supporters and friends of the team.
Today we are very pleased to have received from David another kind and thoughtful donation to the team of £50.00.
David very kindly handed over the donation to our Team Leader Garry Rhodes along with an accompanying letter which stated:
“To all the members of the team.”
“It is good to see you again, this annual ceremony has become one of the milestones in the passing year.”
“I was pleased to read on your website that you have been involved in talks aimed at keeping the ceremony going in the future.”
“In September, Iain and I walked the second highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales, and I remembered your contribution to his continued ability to walk.”
“I enclose a donation,
As ever the entire team membership extends its sincere thanks to David Bisset and his family, for such continued and very appreciated kind and thoughtful support of the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team.
