On Sunday 17th May 2015 we reported within the ‘News’ section of our website, that on Saturday 16th May 2015, young Chloe Southworth and her mum Karen Southworth called briefly at our Ladybridge Hall Base / HQ, meeting team member and former Team Chairman Ken Oakes, presenting him with a very kind cheque donation of £25.00 from Chloe, arising from some fundraising at school split between some pupils chosen charities.
Chloe’s mum Karen informed us that Chloe had another fundraiser planned soon, a 40s night, again in support of Bolton Mountain Rescue Team.
Regular readers will be aware via our website that on Good Friday 2014, the team came to the rescue of Chloe Southworth, who suffered a serious leg injury on Rivington Pike whilst enjoying the sunny day with her father, uncle and cousin.
Chloe was immediately tended to by team members on the day, and was flown to hospital by the North West Air Ambulance (Please see website ‘News’ report dated Good Friday, 18th April 2014).
Since her accident that day, Chloe has very kindly offered to support the North West Air Ambulance and Bolton Mountain Rescue Team charities in her role as Rose Queen for 2014-2015 at St. Peter’s Church in Chorley.
Today, Tuesday 11th August, via Facebook, we received the following message from Chloe’s mum, Karen;
Just wanted to let you know that everything is booked now for chloe’s Vintage & Wartime themed evening at St Peter’s Club, Chorley on 5th September. Proceeds from the night are being split between BMRT and her church for this one and we’ve set up a just giving page for donations to NWAA for anyone who wants to support her but can’t make the evening. Anyone who wants to come along on the night is more than welcome.
We all acknowledge the absolutely fantastic effort Chloe is going to, along with her many supporters to in turn support us and the NWAA, what an amazing feat for this young girl, supported by her mum, dad and family.
Obviously all the team membership wishes to thank Chloe for her continuing tremendous support of both ourselves and the North West Air Ambulance.
