Cel­e­bra­tion as walk raises £1,700 for cause

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

STAFF and friends from a Mac­cles­field care home have raised more than £1,700 for char­ity.

The staff at Prest­bury House Care Home or­gan­ised a 10 mile walk in aid of Can­cer Re­search.

Deb­bie Machin set up the event as a team build­ing ex­er­cise, with rel­a­tives also get­ting in­volved.

They walked from the West Park Drive care home in Mac­cles­field, to Ast­burymere Care Home in Con­gle­ton wear­ing pink wigs and tu­tus.

And once they had tot­ted up the fi­nal fundrais­ing amount, they then en­joyed a party for all the staff and res­i­dents, and pre­sented the fundrais­ing cheque to Can­cer Re­search.

Michelle Wal­ton, leisure and well­ness co-or­di­na­tor, who helped or­gan­ise the party with Deb­bie, said: “This event is one of the best, if not the best, we have ever had.

“All the staff and res­i­dents danced the af­ter­noon away and I have never seen so many smiles and so much laugh­ter at Prest­bury House.”

Guests at the party – which in­cluded Mayor of Cheshire East Coun­cil­lor Olivia Hunter – en­joyed per­for­mances from singer Sam Jones and food cooked by Prest­bury House chef Richard Daibell, with cer­tifi­cates awarded to those who took part.
