Event raises £1,700 for church
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.”
