MEN­TAL health pa­tients held a cake sale to raise money for the vic­tims of the Manch­ester ter­ror­ist at­tack.

Pa­tients at Soss Moss, part of Cheshire and Wir­ral Part­ner­ship NHS Foun­da­tion Trust and based at Nether Alder­ley, held a ‘Muffins for Manch­ester’ event.

They raised more than £100 for the Bri­tish Red Cross’ ‘We Love Manch­ester’ fund.

Gary Pig­ott, who ac­cesses ser­vices at Sad­dle­bridge Re­cov­ery Cen­tre, baked dozens of cakes that were sold to staff and fel­low ser­vice users. He said: “It feels good to be able to help such a wor­thy cause by bring­ing peo­ple to­gether through some­thing pos­i­tive. Thanks to ev­ery­one who bought a cake. I hope our small do­na­tion is able to help peo­ple who re­ally need it.”

Soss Moss is a 30-bed low se­cure in­pa­tient site com­pris­ing of two wards.

Sad­dle­bridge Re­cov­ery Cen­tre is a 15-bed men­tal health unit, and the Alder­ley Unit helps peo­ple with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties.
