Ahead of the big day on Friday 5 May 2017, our branches have been busy and are off to a flying start by raising just over £585 already!
Reeds Rains Morley
Branch Manager Cairn Morrison is getting his running shoes on:
"On the 02 April 2017, I will be running the Liverpool Half Marathon, and although I do a few of these types of events throughout the year, it’s very rare I ever help others benefit by raising sponsorship for charity. This time I am hoping to raise lots of money for Cash for Kids knowing that it will help make a difference to local disadvantaged and disabled children in our community. Running for such a great cause, will certainly help me complete the miles in good time, so please dig deep and donate".
Within the branch we will also be running a raffle as we get closer to Friday 5 May 2017 with a collection of prizes kindly donated by local businesses.
If you would like to support Cairn and his colleagues at the Morley branch you can donate via the Morley branch page here

So if you are passing, do pop into the Wilmslow branch and purchase one or two cakes for this great cause!"
