Marie Curie community fundraising

We are thrilled to share that our recent quiz night in aid of Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal was a great success! The incredible support we received from our local community made all the difference in raising vital funds for such a meaningful cause, and we would like to say a huge congratulations to our quiz champions, who won themselves a fantastic £50 voucher to Lion and Swan in Congleton. We concluded the event with a raffle draw featuring excellent prizes kindly donated by friends of our home, including Beartown Brewery, Egeton Arms, M&S Food and Tesco in Congleton and Waitrose in Alderley Edge. We would like to say a huge thank you to all who joined and supported us in raising funds for Marie Curie – your generosity and enthusiasm truly touched the hearts of both our residents and team!
