Teenagers or­gan­ise fun day for Bosley fund

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A GROUP of teenagers have or­gan­ised a fun day to raise money for the peo­ple af­fected by the ex­plo­sion in Bosley.

The stu­dents – aged be­tween 15 and 17 – are all part of the four week Na­tional Citizen Ser­vice (NCS) Pro­gramme, which has been set up to give kids some­thing worth­while to do over their sum­mer hol­i­days.

They de­cided to hold a fam­ily fun day to sup­port the fam­i­lies af­fected by the tragedy in Bosley.

Three peo­ple are thought to have died in the ex­plo­sion at the Bosley wood mill, and a fourth worker is still miss­ing.

The teenagers hope their event, which they have or­gan­ised in just two weeks, will raise as much money as pos­si­ble for the cause, and will also be sup­port­ing an­i­mal res­cue cen­tre An­gel’s Res­cue.

Rhi­an­non Turner, 16, said: “The first few days were hard but it’s get­ting eas­ier. Ev­ery­one’s re­ally ex­cited”.

The event, which in­cludes bouncy cas­tles, stalls, sports tour­na­ments and per­for­mances from lo­cal bands, is be­ing held at the Multi Ac­tiv­ity Cen­tre on Goodall street on Satur­day, Au­gust 15.

The event runs from 10am un­til 4pm. For in­for­ma­tion go to face­book. com/NCSFes­ti­val.
