Pupils in shop’s good books

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE HOSPICE -

KIND-HEARTED pupils from Ash Grove Academy in Mac­cles­field showed their ap­pre­ci­a­tion for book do­na­tions by rais­ing £88.30 for East Cheshire Hos­pice.

The char­ity’s shop at Ch­ester­gate was over­whelmed with books from the public so de­cided to pass some on to the school.

The do­na­tion came through long-stand­ing hos­pice shop volunteer Liz Ker­shaw whose daugh­ter Katy Ghor­ba­nian teaches at Ash Grove.

In turn young­sters held fundrais­ing ini­tia­tives, in­clud­ing a cake sale, to sup­port East Cheshire Hos­pice. Shop su­per­vi­sor Kate Davies said: “It was kind of the pupils and the school to think of us in this way. We re­ceive lots of books from the public and are al­ways grate­ful for such do­na­tions. How­ever, on this oc­ca­sion we had too many for us to sell so it was a lovely idea to ben­e­fit the chil­dren with some ex­tra reading ma­te­rial and fur­ther strengthen our strong ties with lo­cal schools.”
