Readers will recall our report with sadness, that following a long illness, Mrs Joan Charles, passed away on Friday 10th April, aged 71 years.
Joan, along with her husband Len – who survives Joan, were both members of our Support Group in the late 1980s and in to the 1990s, and continued to lend their full support to the team up to current times.
The full and sincere condolences of the team were expressed at the time to Joan’s family, including her husband Len, daughter and current serving team member Gill Leigh, her husband and former team member and ex Deputy Team Leader Ian Leigh, Joan and Lens other daughter Kath, and other family members, friends and colleagues.
Very kindly and thoughtfully in support of the team, donations in lieu of flowers at Joan’s funeral of Monday 20th April 2015, were requested to Bolton MRT to honour the memory of Joan.
Today we have received a very thoughtful £20.00 donation from Mr Michael Lee and Mrs Anne Lee of Horwich, in memory of Joan Charles.
Please see website ‘News’ reports of Sunday 2nd November, Sunday 9th November and Wednesday 10th December, all 2014, at which the team took part in a little surprise for Joan and Len at their Golden Wedding Anniversary celebrations, which also raised a considerable donation to the work of the Bolton MRT, Tuesday 14th April and Monday 20th April 2015.
