Fundraiser raises cash for hos­pi­tal

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER - ALEX HIB­BERT

AN event raised £1,300 for a team at Mac­cles­field Hos­pi­tal.

The Mac­cles­field Dis­trict Hos­pi­tal Mu­sic and Fine Art event at the town’s Revo­lu­tion bar helped drum up funds for the hos­pi­tal’s Home In­tra­venous Ther­apy Team.

It was or­gan­ised by NV Mod­el­ling and Events in con­junc­tion with Ame­niah Raquel, an events plan­ner from New York, and Chris­tine Lane of the med­i­cal team.

Mem­bers of the Mac­cles­field business com­mu­nity, res­i­dents and NHS dig­ni­taries were all en­ter­tained by live mu­sic from band But­ter­fly Jam, cham­pagne and canapés.

Mac­cles­field Mayor Janet Jack­son, who also at­tended, said: “It was a great event that raised money for a very wor­thy cause - the peo­ple that help pa­tients with heart prob­lems and other ail­ments.

“I was par­tic­u­larly in­ter­ested hav­ing had open heart surgery my­self.

“Ev­ery­one seemed to have a great night and lots of busi­nesses got in­volved to spon­sor prizes.

“I had another en­gage­ment so didn’t stay too long which was a shame as I heard it got even busier than it was when I was there later on.

“It was great to meet ev­ery­one - peo­ple from the hos­pi­tal and from busi­nesses around Mac­cles­field.

“And it raised £1,330 for the hos­pi­tal’s team which is an ab­so­lutely bril­liant amount. There’s lots go­ing on around the town at the minute and that’s great to see, I’m only too happy to support as many com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions and events as I can.”
