Guests en­joy their hol­i­day at home

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A CHURCH hosted a spe­cial ‘hol­i­day at home’ event to give guests the chance to get to­gether, so­cialise and try new ac­tiv­i­ties - just as they would on hol­i­day.

The event was or­gan­ised by Syliva and Richard Johnson for Hurds­field Church, and was held at Holy Trin­ity Church over three days, with free trans­port avail­able to those who need it.

Speak­ing af­ter the event, Chris­tine But­ton said: “Each day started with cof­fee and bis­cuits on ar­rival and later a glass of sherry or fruit juice and a two course hot lunch.

“The day fin­ished with home made cakes and tea or cof­fee. In the morn­ing guests could choose be­tween craft work­shops, hand mas­sages, in­door games and out­door games like putting, cro­quet and boules. Or they could sit and chat, read and re­lax.”

Be­fore lunch there was a ‘thought for the day’ and in the af­ter­noon, fun games and mu­sic. This year’s event in­cluded mu­sic from The Hul­la­bal­loo choir from Wilm­slow Guild, Rainow Church hand­bell ringers and ‘Jan the Hu­la­man’ with fun, quirky and happy mu­sic.

The event was also made pos­si­ble to the hard work of 18 vol­un­teers plus three cooks and helpers in the kitchen.
