Friends take on fam­ily fun­day and chal­leng­ing yomp for sol­diers char­ity

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A DED­I­CATED troupe of fundrais­ers held an event to raise cash for char­ity.

The fam­ily fun­day was held at the Mul­berry Bush pub on Caris­brooke Av­enue in Macclesfield, and was or­gan­ised by Kerri Woods and her pals Sue Limb, Yvonne May­ers and Sarah Grat­ton, in aid of the ABF Sol­diers Char­ity.

Mum of three Kerri, 36, said: “We raised £2,133.04 which is ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic. We had lots of prizes do­nated from shops and busi­nesses in Macclesfield so we’d like to say thank you to ev­ery­one who do­nated. It was bril­liant. We’d also like to ex­press our grat­i­tude to Brian Smith at the Mul­berry Bush.”

Kerri and her friends are hop­ing to add to the fundrais­ing pot with their next chal­lenge - to walk 54 miles through Scot­land in 24 hours for the Cat­eran Yomp.

Kerri, 36, who is mar­ried to Matthew, said: “My hus­band is ex army and he did the walk last year with a cou­ple of friends. Af­ter­wards he said ‘you would never be able to do it’ so us girls de­cided we’d give it a go and try to prove them wrong! I’m the girl that walks to the car, so it’s go­ing to be dif­fi­cult, but we’re get­ting as much train­ing in as pos­si­ble.”

To spon­sor the team go to sol­dier­schar­ity.org/ yomp and use the ref­er­ence ‘Girl Power’.
