ASDA stores operate a Green Token Scheme in their supermarkets to support local charitable organisations. Bolton Mountain Rescue Team was chosen by the ASDA store in Middlebrook, Horwich, as one of three nominated charities for April 2016 and we were delighted to learn that as we had received the most votes from their customers, we would be awarded a cheque from the ASDA Foundation.
Our Secretary, Gillian Gregory, was invited by ASDA Community Champion, Lynda Gallimore, to visit the Horwich store earlier this week to receive the cheque. On arrival, Gillian was surprised and delighted to learn that the cheque was for a fantastic £500.
This money will be used to purchase new rope rescue harnesses for team use in our search and rescue work.
We would like to thank the Charities Committee at ASDA Horwich and Community Champion Lynda Gallimore for nominating Bolton Mountain Rescue Team, ASDA’s kind customers for voting for us, and The ASDA Foundation for the marvellous donation of £500.
