Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD HALF MARATHON RESULTS -

ROUND Ta­ble mem­bers do­nated £7,000 to the Rossendale Trust from money raised at this year’s Mac­cles­field Beer Fes­ti­val.

Chris Leonard from Mac­cles­field and Dis­trict Round Ta­ble pre­sented the cheque to Rossendale’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Steve Ni­chols to help with the char­ity’s work sup­port­ing adults with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties from its site on Hollin Lane.

It will be used to help build the Oak­wood Arts and Me­dia learn­ing cen­tre, which of­fers ac­tiv­i­ties for Rossendale Trust users to de­velop skills, knowl­edge and con­fi­dence. The de­vel­op­ment, due to be fin­ished by the end of Oc­to­ber, was funded en­tirely through vol­un­tary con­tri­bu­tions.

Steve Ni­chols said: “It’s through the hard work and kind do­na­tions of or­gan­i­sa­tions such as the Round Ta­ble, lo­cal business and in­di­vid­ual donors that has made this project pos­si­ble. The funds raised will di­rectly im­pact on help­ing us to support the adults we care for reach their po­ten­tial.”
