A coffee morning, held in memory of former Chelford GP, Roger Roycroft, has been hailed as a great success. The event, held last Friday 15th March at the Community Hub, was aimed at raising funds for charities which had particular significance for Roger and his wife Sue.
The morning was attended by a large number of residents who spent willingly on cakes, books, the tombola and raffle. As a result, the morning raised a remarkable sum of £500 in two hours, which will now be donated across Bloodwise (Leukaemia Research), The Oncology Trust Fund (Macclesfield Hospital) and the Lullaby Trust (Sudden Infant death). Roger's wife Sue will determine the allocations.
Patsy Howlett, one of the organisers, commented that the sum of money raised was a great example of Chelford residents coming together to support worthy causes and to remember Roger for the work he did in our community as a GP and Parish Councillor.
Thanks to all the organisers and to those who contributed on the day, to make the event so memorable.
