Event: Maggie’s Fundraiser at Pizza Express, Hale – 19.11.19

Lovely people of Hale!
And, of course, beyond…
Sarah Kelly aka the fabulous Nelly K soft furnishings based in Altrincham, is hosting a great night of live music, fun and fundraising for Manchester charity Maggie’s , centres set up to provide free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends.

Sarah has set herself the fantastic challenge of raising £6500 for Maggie’s, part of which she will be embarking on a staggering 70km trek across snow and ice in March 2020.
Sounds impressive? Is there a way I can help but in the more tropical climes of Hale Village in perhaps a pizza-ey type setting?
Why yes!
