Hale toddler group aims to back poverty charity
6:50pm Tuesday 18th February 2014 in News
A HALE toddler group is to hold a ‘Good as New’ sale in the hope of raising money for the charity it supports, writes Tom Dyson.
St Peter’s Toddler Group meets every Friday morning at St Peter’s Church in Hale, and gives youngsters the chance to get together with other children to play games and take part in activities.
Their chosen charity, The Wood Street Mission, runs projects to help children and families affected by poverty in Manchester, and Rachael Woodhall, who runs the toddler group, wants to raise awareness by holding a sale on Saturday, March 15.
The sale will encourage people to bring in clothes and other items which can be sold as quality second hand items for children.
She said: “This is a charity which helps local families with children who have no homes, they are basically poverty stricken.
“We are wanting to hold this ‘Good as New’ sale where 75 per cent of proceeds go to the vendors of the items brought in, and 25 per cent goes to the Wood Street Mission.”
The charity aims to help disadvantaged children with people endeavouring to give them bedding equipment, toys and food parcels.
On top of having a clothes and toy sale, there will be a cake sale where mothers from the toddler group will bake cakes and proceeds will go to the charity.
The ‘Good as New’ sale will take place at St. Peter’s Assembly Rooms, Cecil Road, Hale, between 10am and noon. Admission is £1.
