Tug-of-war fun day raises £1,700 for fund
HUNDREDS attended a family fun day on Saturday to raise funds for the victims and families of the Bosley explosion.
The Queens Arms Pub in Bosley raised more than £1,700 with a selection of stalls, pony rides, a bungee run and a car boot sale.
Canalside Radio provided the music on the day, which also included a bouncy castle, face painting, a tombola and raffle.
Gwyneth Jones, the pub’s landlady, whose daughter Kerry organised the day, said: “It was fabulous, Kerry did a really good job.”
Bosley Tug of War Club also organised a six-a-side competition between five mixed gender teams.
Pulling their way to victory were Middlewich Young Farmers Club, followed by Ben’s Team in second, Bosley WAGS, including club members’ partners in third, Adam Partridge Auctioneers in fourth and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Tuggers in fifth.
Club secretary Alan Knott said: “There were loads of people there and the contest raised more than £400.”
On Sunday (August 16) the club competes in the Tug of War Association National League Finals at the Cheshire Game and Angling Fair, beginning at 11am.
