Join our ap­peal to help tragedy vic­tims

Macclesfield Express - - BOSLEY TRAGEDY -

MORE than 160 busi­nesses have signed up to our Bring a Pound to Work ap­peal for the Bosley ex­plo­sion.

The Ex­press has joined forces with Silk 106.9 to en­cour­age work­ers to dig deep for those af­fected by the Bosley blast in a spe­cial cam­paign to­day.

Em­ploy­ees from at least 160 firms will do­nate money to be added to a fund set up by the Bosley com­mu­nity af­ter the dis­as­ter.

Gareth Tid­man, Ex­press editor, said: “The tragedy of Bosley has touched the very heart of our com­mu­nity and the lo­cal re­sponse has been fan­tas­tic.

“This is an ex­cel­lent way that we can all play our part in help­ing the vic­tims.”

A team from Silk FM will visit par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­nesses to­day from 6am to 6pm to col­lect do­na­tions and there will be live up­dates on the ra­dio.

David Flavell, from Silk FM, said: “We’ve had a great re­sponse, with all shapes and sizes of busi­nesses sign­ing up to take part.

“To­day is the big day, we hope peo­ple will bring as much as they can so we can raise as much money as pos­si­ble.”

The reg­is­tra­tion page on the Silk 106.9 web­site re­mains open for busi­nesses to join in.
