Event raises grand to­tal for good causes

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

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.
