Bolton Mountain Rescue given more than £2,000 through collection boxes over last year
BOLTON Mountain Rescue Team coined in more than £2,000 from their collection boxes.
The team has 123 collection boxes out in the area that have brought in £2,066 during the past year.
The money was slightly down compared to the previous year, but two of the collection boxes were stolen over the summer and the cash never recovered.
A collection box containing about £200 was stolen from Vaughn’s Country Cafe, in Tockholes, near Darwen, and another from The Barber Shop, in Deansgate, Radcliffe, which contained between £30 and £40.
The charity is trying to increase its collection boxes to 150 and is appealing for help in achieving this.
Garry Rhodes, from Bolton Mountain Rescue Team, said: “We offer our sincere thanks to all who so kindly host a box and of course to the large number of supporters who contribute to so regularly filling up our boxes.
“They are all regularly emptied, with all sites thanked and acknowledged each time a box is emptied.
“Additionally, at each year end, all sites that have generated more than £50 but less than £100 receive a laminated certificate.
“Those collection sites that have raised over £100 during the year receive a team plaque.”
