Kind thanks from a new Team Supporter, Volodymyr Balakunets in Ukraine

On Thursday 11th June 2015, we reported within our website on an enquiry received from a supporter in the Ukraine;

“Dear Bolton Mountain Rescue Team,

My name is Volodymyr. I’m a fan of everything related with Mountain Rescue.

I would like to thank you for your important work and ask you to send me some souvenirs (like pin, shoulder patch, pen, stickers or other).
For me, it’s important. I hope to hear from you soon, deeply appreciate your understanding in fulfilling this request and wish you a great summertime!

Sincerely, Volodymyr Balakunets

My address: Ivana Sirka str. 7 Chortkiv, Ternopilska oblast, Ukraine, 48500.”

Our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE replied to Volodymyr, sending a metal mountain rescue supporters badge, and a mountain rescue badge, a national mountain rescue supporters car sticker, a team supporters car sticker and two team cloth badges.

Garry has subsequently received the following kind email from Volodymyr, dated 26th July 2015;

“Good Morning Mr. Rhodes,

I’m writing to let you know that I received your parcel a few days ago.

Thank you very much for such great stuff added to my modest collection!

Have a nice day!

Kind regards, Volodymyr Balakunets.”

Perhaps our colleague neighbouring mountain rescue and search and rescue teams would also like to support the mountain rescue themed collection of Volodymyr.
