Care home do­na­tion

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORING -

A CARE home helped raise money for East Cheshire Hospice by hold­ing its very own win­ter fair.

Staff at Prest­bury Beau­mont, off Col­lar House Drive in Prest­bury, have an­nounced that its re­cent event man­aged to raise £187.93 for the hospice.

And now its car­ing work­ers have handed the hospice’s fundrais­ing of­fi­cer He­lena Gowler a cheque for the funds, which were also drummed up through the sale of Christ­mas wreaths cre­ated by its gar­den­ing and main­te­nance staff.

Alex Romei, from Prest­bury Beau­mont, said: “It has been a plea­sure to be able to raise funds for the hospice with the fan­tas­tic help of lo­cal peo­ple par­tic­i­pat­ing in the fair and through our gar­den­ers’ ini­tia­tive and cre­ativ­ity on their beau­ti­ful wreaths.

“We are look­ing for­ward to dou­bling the sum of money this year and help­ing the hospice again in the fu­ture by host­ing more fundrais­ing events.”
