The not-for-profit com­pany on Goodall Street will do­nate all skate hire fees in Oc­to­ber, priced at 50p per per­son, to the cause.

BBC Ra­dio Manch­ester will also visit the cen­tre on Thurs­day evening from 6.30pm to 9pm, dur­ing the adults only skat­ing ses­sion.

Andy Brooks, co-di­rec­tor, said: “East Cheshire Hos­pice are fan­tas­tic and strug­gle to raise funds.

“Skat­ing is a great way to help us do this for them as it is fun, good ex­er­cise, not weather de­pen­dent and fam­ily friendly.”

He added that the event is the first in a se­ries or­gan­ised by the mul­ti­ac­tiv­ity cen­tre and they hope to raise a cou­ple of hun­dred pounds each month.

There is a 1970s disco in Novem­ber and a Rein­deer Run in De­cem­ber where chil­dren can don red noses and chase Santa Claus on skates.

Apart from gen­eral skat­ing, the cen­tre, which opened in July, also of­fers lessons on Satur­day and Sun­days from 11am and roller hockey club at 12.30pm.

Skat­ing ses­sions are £5 in­clud­ing skate hire. For more in­for­ma­tion see macac­tiv­i­ty­cen­tre.co.uk.
