Event raises £1,700 for church

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A SUC­CESS­FUL church fair raised a whop­ping £1,700.

The event was or­gan­ised in aid of the Mac­cles­field and Bolling­ton United Re­formed Church in or­der to raise some much needed funds for its up­keep.

Around 300 peo­ple at­tended the event.

In ad­di­tion to the bustling stalls, a fire en­gine from Cheshire Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice was on hand so that peo­ple had the chance to climb aboard and find out more about the im­por­tant work of the ser­vice.

Mac­cles­field MP David Rut­ley was also among the visi­tors.

Mr Rut­ley has been a reg­u­lar sup­porter of the fundrais­ing work done by the church, which is so ac­tive in the com­mu­nity, and he will be in at­ten­dance next month at its pop­u­lar Christ­mas tree fes­ti­val.

Speak­ing fol­low­ing the fair, he said: “It was a plea­sure and hon­our to sup­port the fair and to see so many peo­ple at­tend­ing and giv­ing much ap­pre­ci­ated money to­wards the run­ning of the church.

“The events run by the church of­fer a much val­ued com­pan­ion­ship for or­gan­is­ers and visi­tors alike and help strengthen the com­mu­nity spirit.

“I would like to thank all who or­gan­ised and at­tended and, of course, Cheshire Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice, for help­ing to make the event such a suc­cess.”
