£300 raised for cause as egg idea hatches

Mum’s new dance class is in mem­ory of tragic school pal

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

AHEN lover has raised more than £300 for char­ity by mak­ing use of her chick­ens’ sur­plus eggs.

Lacey Allen, who keeps chick­ens at her home in Mac­cles­field with son and hus­band Joe, has raised £365 for the Bri­tish Hen Wel­fare Trust. She bakes cup­cakes us­ing her sur­plus eggs and sells them to friends and fam­ily in re­turn for a do­na­tion.

The money goes to the Bri­tish Hen Wel­fare Trust, which finds lov­ing pet homes for ex-com­mer­cial lay­ing hens that would oth­er­wise be des­tined for slaugh­ter.

She said: “I wanted to sup­port the char­ity and hold­ing a Free Range Fri­day seemed like a great way.

“With my hus­band hav­ing break­fast at work and me be­ing ve­gan we al­ways have lots of spare eggs in the house.

“I am also a very keen baker so it just seemed like the per­fect fit, it has been a great suc­cess so far.”

To date Lacey has held three ‘Free Range Fri­days’.

A MUM-OF-TWO from Mac­cles­field is stag­ing a free dance class for char­ity in mem­ory of a school friend who died of can­cer.

Sarah Maxwell, 27, is hold­ing a Mu­si­cal Steps ses­sion to raise funds for the Rhi­nol­ogy and Laryn­gol­ogy Re­search Fund, af­ter her friend Char­lotte Hails, 30, died of can­cer in June 2013.

Mu­si­cal Steps is a com­pany that runs mu­sic classes for ba­bies and tod­dlers to help de­velop com­mu­ni­ca­tion, lan­guage, lis­ten­ing and cre­ative skills.

Sarah, from Knights Close, who will run the classes ev­ery Fri­day at Mor­ton Hall, said: “I wanted the launch class to raise money for a char­ity that means some­thing to me per­son­ally.

“I went to Bux­ton Com­mu­nity School with Char­lotte. She was a lovely girl and a tal­ented vi­o­lin­ist. She also did a lot of fundrais­ing her­self.”

Char­lotte’s mum, Doreen Hails, said: “Sarah is be­ing mar­vel­lously kind rais­ing the funds.”

The launch class at Mor­ton Hall on March 18 in­cludes sec­tions for ba­bies and tod­dlers. The class is now fully booked but those wish­ing to make do­na­tions can visit uk. vir­gin­money­giv­ing.com/ rhi­nol­o­gyand­laryn­gol­ogy re­search­fund.
