●● A NIGHT of en­ter­tain­ment raised more than £4,000 for those af­fected by the Bosley ex­plo­sion.

Around 140 peo­ple at­tended the Boost for Bosley fundraiser at Sut­ton ExSer­vice­men’s Club with live en­ter­tain­ment, an auc­tion and raf­fle.

The en­ter­tain­ment was hosted by Andy Hofton with guest ap­pear­ances from Ju­lian Ryan, Emma Bar­ton Ken­wor­thy, Calum Ho­gan, Dave Jay, Danny Thor­ley, Niall Rodgers and Han­nah Grime.

Raf­fle and auc­tion prizes were do­nated by club mem­bers, the Beauty Bar, Ye Olde Kings Head, and Fastrac Re­tail.

The evening was a sell-out and do­na­tions also came in from peo­ple who could not at­tend. The club domino team won their league and pledged their £100 win­nings. All the bar pro­ceeds and tips from the evening were added to the grand to­tal of £4,100.

Sean Rodgers, a Sut­ton ExSer­vice­men’s com­mit­tee mem­ber, said: “It was a fan­tas­tic evening. We were over­whelmed by the lo­cal com­mu­nity’s sup­port and gen­eros­ity to­wards this wor­thy cause, not only by at­tend­ing and do­nat­ing gifts but also the time given by the en­ter­tain­ers and the club of­fi­cials to or­gan­ise and run the event.” ●● A PUB in Gur­nett has done its bit to raise money for the Bosley fund. Ye Olde Kings Head do­nated money from quiz evenings, rais­ing £143. ●● A FLOWER fes­ti­val and ‘Ride and Stride’ event will take place on Satur­day, Septem­ber 12.

Par­tic­i­pants will com­plete a route in lo­cal coun­try­side by bike, on foot, horse­back or other means, with re­fresh­ments and flower dis­plays at Sut­ton St James church, St Mary the Vir­gin in Bosley, St Michael’s in Win­cle and St Saviour’s in Wild­boar­clough.

Spon­sor­ship will be split be­tween the four churches and His­toric Cheshire Churches Trust.
