KERRIDGE AND RAINOW Mosaic is boost for road safety charity
AN artist who created a mosaic in commemoration of two cyclists who lost their lives in road accidents has raised £600 for a bike charity.
Debra Tracey, from The Creative Space studio in Bollington, created the piece to coincide with the Tour of Britain, which passed through Bollington in the summer.
It was inspired by Guy Wharton, a teacher from Bollington, who died following an accident on the Cat and Fiddle earlier this year, and Debra’s family friend Warren Hayward, who also died in a road accident.
Debra , 52, raffled off the mosiac in aid of the road safety charity Brake and raised £610.
It was won by Georgina Timson.
Debra said: “I’m delighted that the mosaic raised £610.
“As always, the Bollington community all came together to help me raise the money, with thanks to St Oswald’s Parish Church who held an open evening for the draw, Belfield’s Bakery, The Poacher’s Inn, Tytherington High School, Cafe Waterside and more, who all sold tickets.
“A special thank you, has to go to Mark at Kellico Interiors, who, on hearing that I had locked myself out of my studio the day of the draw and was unable to access the tickets, paid the locksmith to enable her to get the tickets in time for the draw.”
