KERRIDGE AND RAINOW Mo­saic is boost for road safety char­ity

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

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.”

De­bra’s mo­saic was pre­sented to win­ner Ge­orgina Tim­son by Guy Whar­ton’s wi­dow, Francesca Whar­ton
