Sep 7 2014
This evening three of our team operational members, Equipment Officer – Base / HQ Paul Copley, Treasurer Martin Banks and very long serving Gillian Leigh, were guests of Bolton Lads and Girls Club Graduation Evening at the Platinum Suite, Bolton Wanderers Football Club, Macron Stadium, at Middlebrook, Bolton.
Members of Bolton Lads and Girls Club recently participated in the National Citizens Scheme, involving four sections, ie, a week of social action with visits from Police and charities, a week of planning their charity work and four days of carrying out their charity work.
Seven young Lads and Girls Club members who had participated in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, kindly agreed to fundraise for the Bolton MRT, given the relevance of mountain rescue in regards to their DoE Award work.
We understand the seven kindly undertook a sponsored walk around around Rivington in late August 2014, and tonight their fantastic fundraising efforts for us resulted in the handover of a marvellous sum of £243.53p
All the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team membership wish to thank the seven members of Bolton Lads and Girls Club who helped raise this wonderful donation for us.
Please keep watching our website for a more detailed report on this very special evening coming soon.
