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.
