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.

Your NHS needs you! NHS Volunteer Responders has been set up to support the NHS during the COVID-19 outbreak. To do this we need an 'army' of volunteers who can support the 1.5m people in England who are at most risk from the virus to stay well. goodsamapp.org/NHS
Today we met with Dave and his brother, who kindly raised some money for the team after we helped him last year. It’s always great to met people we’ve helped and to know how they are doing. Thank you for visiting… instagram.com/p/B9rJYsDBdxn/…
