Nice Nosh makes a final donation
After ten years serving food and drinks to the visitors in Macclesfield Forest John Sellors has recently served his last customer but even then he couldn’t forget his friends at Buxton Mountain Rescue Team.
For his last day John very generously provided free food and encouraged customers to make a donation to the local Mountain Rescue Team. Over the years he has contributed over £1,500 to the team and so, Dave Goodman the team’s Fundraising Manager, presented John with a certificate to mark the occasion. Dave was quick to add his appreciation on behalf of Buxton MRT stating, “Without this kind of generosity from the local community the team wouldn’t exist and it wouldn’t be able to go to the aid of people in distress on the local hills”.
John has lived all his life in the Peak District and began his love of the outdoors by walking these hills from the age of twelve and then progressing to climbing the local crags and even joining the Derbyshire Cave Rescue Team in his twenties. He has also enjoyed scuba-diving, until he had a recent serious health scare whilst on a dive in the Maldives, and has a passion for skiing.
John started Nice Nosh after successfully bidding for the concession at Macclesfield Forest after being made redundant from his engineering job at Otter Controls which he had held for over 30 years. The combination of being outdoors and cooking made this a simple choice for John and was reinforced by his enthusiastic support for the Macclesfield Fair Trade Group.
