Ra­dio Canal­side 102.8FM

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

WE were very proud to be in­vited by Mac­cles­field Har­ri­ers to pro­vide the PA for the Sport Relief event that was held at the Mac­cles­field ath­letic track on Sun­day, March 19.

We even had some of our peo­ple tak­ing part. Well done to Tr­ish Napier and her fam­ily for com­plet­ing the walk and Trevor Jenk­ins who did a great job as our sta­tion mas­cot, DJ Teddy. The event was a huge suc­cess, with nearly 170 peo­ple tak­ing part. The event raised over £1,000 for Sport Relief. Or­gan­iser Bob Lynch said: “Once again many thanks for your team ef­fort in putting on the event. A to­tal of 164 peo­ple took part and just from the en­tries and with­out any do­na­tions, the event will have raised £1,000 for Sport Relief. Ev­ery­body seemed to en­joy it and I think the ad­di­tion of Canal­side Ra­dio def­i­nitely added to the oc­ca­sion, plus they pro­vided bal­loons as well as run­ning them­selves.”

You will see us out and about with our PA sys­tem at many lo­cal events through­out the year. Next up is the Cheshire youth rugby festival at Mac­cles­field Rugby club on Sun­day, April 17. Coun­cil­lor Rachel Bai­ley, the re­cently ap­pointed leader of Cheshire East Coun­cil is at­tend­ing our stu­dios on Wed­nes­day, April 6, for an in­ter­view that will be recorded and played out at reg­u­lar times on 102.8FM. If you have any ques­tions you would like putting to Rachel please email them in ad­vance to of­fice@ thethread.org.uk.
