Skate centre pledged to help hospice
A skating centre has raised more than £500 for East Cheshire Hospice.
MAC Multi activity centre on Goodall Street opened up last year taking over the former Everett Charles Technologies premises.
It’s main activity is roller-skating and there is a cafe and community room.
But the community interest company behind the scheme have big plans to expand the facilities into a climbing and bouldering centre, multisports area and soft play centre.
The centre has chosen to support East Cheshire Hospice and has raised £550 for the charity so far.
Andy Brooks from MAC said: “We had a great start with the centre and have chosen East Cheshire Hospice as a partner. We presented Leah Goodhind from the hospice with a cheque raised before Christmas for £350 and have raised another £200 during the holidays.”
The team at MAC have been busy remodelling the skate rink to make it a better experience for customers.
It was reopened by 10-year-old Aiden Brooks, a pupil at Puss Bank primary school, and Roderick Zukar, skate instructor.
Skating sessions are £5 plus £1 for skate hire.
