Dec Thursday 26 2013
Today, as on Boxing Day 2011, and Boxing Day 2012, at the very kind long standing invitation of the Go Outdoors, Wigan, Store Manager John Harold (A former Bolton MRT call out list member) we were invited to hold a team collection alongside the stores Boxing Day Sale Event.
Taking with them Team Land Rover Mountain Rescue Ambulance Vehicle call sign ‘BM2’ and team display material, team call out list members Nick Berry (Equipment Officer – Ropes and Stretchers) and Chris Tennant, who both also work for Go Outdoors, Wigan, were present to answer the many questions from interested members of the public, and obviously also to collect for the team.
Our Team Training Officer Dave Marsh (Our Trainee DVSD Dog Handler) and Support Group member Tina Tennant were also on hand, to help respectively over the morning and afternoon period with this team collection.
The Boxing Day Sales Event was a great success as was our team collection, with the fantastic total of £288.55p being raised for the team with thanks to the store management for allowing us to collect and of course all the shoppers and visitors to the Go Outdoors, Wigan, Store who so kindly contributed to the team.
On a national basis for Mountain Rescue England and Wales, Go Outdoors are very actively fundraising in their stores for all the MRTs in England and Wales, a fantastic show of much appreciated support.
