Old Boy Passes Lads and Girls Club Torch to Old Girl
Friday, 22 May 2015
Old Boy Ross Warburton has stepped down as president of Bolton Lads and Girls Club, handing over the post to Old Girl Baroness Trish Morris. The change was announced at the club’s annual celebration evening.
Baroness Morris, who was the first chancellor of the University of Bolton, spoke of her long-standing involvement with the club: “I first became involved with Bolton Lads and Girls Club more than twenty years ago, and during that time I have watched it flourish and grow into an outstanding organisation.
“I am honoured to become president and to take over from Ross Warburton, who has been a brilliant champion of the club. I have big shoes to fill.”
Mr Warburton was president for fifteen years and, as Baroness Morris said, he saw Bolton Lads and Girls Club move from strength to strength in that time. The club provides mentoring and opportunities for young people in the area, including the government-backed NCS scheme which Year 11 pupils at Bolton School become involved with each year.
