Newly elected Rose Queen Chloe Southworth to fundraise for Bolton MRT and the North West Air Ambulance, following her accident of Good Friday 18th April 2014

Readers will recall that on Good Friday, 18th April 2014, we responded to an incident involving a young 11 years old girl, who had sustained a serious knee injury, after stumbling on the slopes of Rivington Pike.

The young girl, Chloe Southworth, who had been enjoying the Good Friday festivities in the company of her father, uncle and cousin, was airlifted to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital by the North West Air Ambulance, Helimed 72.

On Tuesday evening 22nd April, we reported that via our ‘Facebook’ pages, we had received the following kind message from Karen Southworth, the mother of the young girl involved in the incident

“A massive, massive thank you to everyone involved in helping my daughter on Good Friday.

Her Dad, Uncle and cousin said you were all absolutely amazing and do a wonderful job.

I am so grateful to you all.

Astonishingly nothing was broken and there was luckily no tendon damage either and following surgery on Saturday, she returned home on Sunday and is doing well.

Thank you once again from all of us x.”

On Wednesday 18th June, again via our Facebook site, we received the following very kind news from Karen Southworth, about a wonderfully supportive gesture by her young daughter Chloe.

“Hi, you helped my daughter, Chloe on Good Friday up Rivington.

She has recently been selected to be Rose Queen at her church this year and she has decided that, as Rose Queen, she wants to raise some funds for both Bolton Mountain Rescue and Air Ambulance so I wondered if you have any fundraising packs which might help her when she’s organising a fundraising event?”

Chloe and her mother Karen, has arranged to visit the team at our Ladybridge hall Base / HQ on Sunday 22nd June, to collect some material we are putting together for her kind endeavour.

All the team members extend their congratulations to Chloe on her Rose Queen success, and we offer our collective thanks for her kindness in supporting us and the NWAA in her tenure as Rose Queen.
