Event raises grand total for good causes
WE live in a world where we are constantly asked to support good causes and charities.
Last week Manchester city centre chief Pat Karney, virtually declared war on the chuggers, those people who jump in your way and demand attention. But just because we don’t like being accosted in the street doesn’t mean we’re not generous and willing to donate.
Our next-door neighbour, Karen, together with my wife Sheila, held a lovely ladies day consisting of bubbly, cream cakes and afternoon tea.
It all happened across the two back gardens which was made possible by removing the fence panels.
£1,000 was raised, which has been shared between Ronald McDonald House (providing accommodation for families with children in hospital) and St Ann’s Hospice.
Thanks to all the lovely ladies who came and joined in the spirit of the day, buying the dresses, shoes, bags, books and bric-a-brac.
Obviously the highlight of the afternoon was the appearance of two hunky blokes who combined bar work with security duties.
I thought they carried off the high-vis jacket look rather well.
