Team Eagley Bank chooses Age UK Bolton as their Charity of the Year 2018
Age UK Bolton has been approached by Team Eagley Bank who have nominated us as their Charity of the year 2018.
Team Eagley Bank was the brainchild of Maureen Heggie who started it with a group of neighbours around The Gardens where she has lived with husband, Jimmy, for the past 26+ years.
The 40-strong Team Eagley Bank also has a special group for youngsters, too. Activities range from garden parties and car-washes to vintage tea parties and sponsored cycle rides.
“But it’s the community spirit that is really more important,” explained Mrs Heggie. “People watch out for each other, water their gardens, collect items for them, go shopping and care about each other. It is like an extended family.”
Over the coming months, this wonderful group of people will be holding a variety of events to raise money to help the older people of Bolton so watch this space for more details...
