Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

THE team be­hind a new multi-ac­tiv­ity cen­tre is stag­ing a fundraiser on Satur­day so it can open as a roller-skat­ing rink this sum­mer.

Time To Care (UK) CIC, a com­mu­nity in­ter­est com­pany, is slowly trans­form­ing the for­mer Everett Charles Tech­nolo­gies premises on Goodall Street into a climb­ing and boul­der­ing cen­tre, multi-sports area, soft play cen­tre, com­mu­nity cen­tre and cafe.

Di­rec­tor Andy Brooks is propos­ing to open a roller-rink later this month and de­velop the other pro­pos­als in the fu­ture.

The fundraiser will in­volve a roller-disco, climb­ing and boul­der­ing walls, bouncy cas­tles and archery demon­stra­tions.

Be­tween 9am and 4pm there is a spon­sored ‘Skate Around the Na­tion’ event where chil­dren are chal­lenged to skate around a gi­ant map of the UK as many times as they can in 15 min­utes.

There will be a rollerdisco af­ter 4pm and live mu­sic from band Low Or­bit from 7pm.

Andy said: “We need your help to make the pro­ject a suc­cess and open for the hol­i­days.”

Spon­sor­ship forms can be down­loaded via http://­nuSZ or by email­ing macac­tiv­i­ty­cen­tre@ btopen­
