Local Businesses and Gatley Primary School joined forces on Friday to fundraise for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Callaghans estate agent, Lowick Mackay solicitors and Magic Moments gift shop, provided cake and coffee, whilst a number of pupils from Gatley Primary forwent their playtime to man the cake stalls. The event that took place on Friday 29th September is part of a nationwide fundraising day for Macmillan Cancer support. The total raised was £286.08.
In addition to this, Gatley Village have spent the month raising awareness of the disease with a specific focus on childhood cancer. It seemed only apt therefore that all the money raised this year should be put forward to the Macmillan paediatric outreach nurses at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.
Sean Callaghan, Managing Director of Callaghans said, “once again we came together to highlight the amazing work of Macmillan Cancer Support. This year the money will go to the Macmillan paediatric outreach nurses at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. They do a phenomenal job of supporting families and I have it on good authority they are angels in disguise.”
