Update from Tommy ‘the bird man’


We would just like to update all of the wonderful and supportive people of Bolton whose kind donations allowed Smithills School to replace the bench at the top of scout road, so that Tommy could continue his walks up the Dean, feeding the birds as he goes.  Ultimately enjoying a well-earned rest at the top with what must be one of the best views of Bolton!  


Tommy has become quite a local celebrity and has asked us to once again pass on his thanks, not just for the bench but also for the waves, smiles and Christmas gifts that were given to him in the run up to Christmas.


Letter from Tommy.


‘Thanks you for all the cards, gifts and lovely messages that I received leading up to Christmas.  I was totally overwhelmed by people’s generosity and the knowledge that people appreciate what I try to do throughout the year.  I always have a smile on my face and a wave for the people passing by.

Thank you for giving me the best Christmas ever.

Tom, the bench man Scout Road.’
