This week our Support Group bid farewell to Julie Thompson who has left the group because of other demands on her time. Julie, a Royal Mail employee, joined the Support Group in April 2009 and has provided valuable help with supermarket collections, catering, fundraising events, monitoring community collecting boxes and other behind-the-scenes tasks.
We thank her for her enthusiasm and support and wish her well in the future.

We have received a kind donation of £20 from Mr Oxtoby of Farnworth in thanks for the help given to his wife on New Year’s Eve whilst the Team was assisting North West Ambulance Service with peak demand cover. He commented that “John & Matthew, the two guys who attended to my wife were excellent, please thank them once again for their help”.
We thank Mr & Mrs Oxtoby for their generosity and hope Mrs Oxtoby has now fully recovered from her accident.

We have received a fantastic donation of £125 from Mrs Pamela Potts of Little Lever, who is a Sports Therapist and each Christmas she holds a raffle amongst her clients. The money raised is donated to a charity which, most years, has been Bolton Mountain Rescue Team.
Pamela gives her thanks for our “valued support to so many people” and we, in turn, thank her and her clients for their kind support of our work through organising the raffle and buying tickets.
Regrettably an amount of PPE (jackets, waterproofs, helmet, radio etc.) was stolen from one of our team members' cars overnight. Estimated value £2500 - details at facebook.com/BoltonMRT/post… - this is not what we want to be spending our charity funds on.
Happy New Year 🥳 thank you for for all your support in 2019. We had 72 callouts in total&with all our other activities like Standby Safety Covers, Training&Fundraising we accumulated over 21,000 volunteer hours! We couldn’t do this without your support and donations! Thank You! pic.twitter.com/tq2JVxkg2w
It can be difficult for the emergency services to locate people. #HelpUsFindYou is their campaign to make people aware and suggest ways to help. For example making house numbers clearly visible. These precious minutes could make all the difference. @NWAmbulance pic.twitter.com/V7urigkHAD
