Saturday 9th December – Room at the Inn – St Paul’s Centre Fundraiser [6-10pm] Admission by donation

Live music by We Are Nomad and Tiny Pioneer. All proceeds going to St Paul’s Centre, Hightown, Crewe.

St Paul’s Centre operates several services across the community, and the event is principally aimed at two of these services – donations to the Food Bank, and cash contributions to their general funds. Hence, the entry fee on the night will be EITHER two (or more!) items from their shopping list, OR a £5 contribution which we’ll forward to the Centre – who’ll receive 100% of all proceeds.

In addition, they also run a wonderful service, in partnership with Sal’s Shoes, to provide free footwear for school age children – this project has been supported and sponsored by the Guinness Partnership and Cheshire Community Foundation. So in addition to the ‘door’, if anyone has donations of good quality, clean second hand footwear, we’d be delighted to collect them to pass on too. Please donate any shoes that have plenty of wear left in them!
