Very kind Christmas donation from our valued and dear long term friends of the team, Deborah and John Garlick
We are very pleased to announce today the receipt by our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE, yesterday, Wednesday 16th December, of a Christmas card and a very kind donation of £25.00 from wife and husband, long term team supporters Deborah and John Garlick of Locking Stumps, Warrington.
In January 1996 we were involved in the rescue of Deborah at a very wintry snowy Rivington, when she suffered spinal injuries in an unfortunate snow sledging accident.
Deborah thankfully went on to make a full recovery and was even featured alongside the team on Granada TV in 2004, when our Ladybridge Hall Base / HQ was officially opened, thanking the team very publicly on television for her safe recovery.
Since her accident Deborah and her husband John have become much appreciated and very valued friends and supporters of the team, making a great many kind and thoughtful number of donations and equipment purchases for us.
On 21st October 2015, we reported within our website ‘News’ that John Garlick, had raised the fantastic amount of £2,285.00 for the team, undertaking a fundraising skydive, as thanks for the team helping his wife Deborah so many years ago.
We subsequently sent to Deborah and John a plaque thanking them for their appreciated and continuing support of the Bolton mountain Rescue Team.
Deborah and John’s kind Christmas card stated;
“Thank you so much for the plaque which we received today.
We’re so sorry we couldn’t make it on the 25th November.
We are glad to hear that the money John raised will be put to good use.
Hope you all have a successful 2016.
To all at BMRT, Happy Christmas and all the best for 2016.
With best wishes john and Deborah Garlick.”
The whole team membership extends its Christmas wishes to Deborah and John and all the best for the New Year.
