The BIG Kidsgrove Coffee Morning

Ruth Parsons Coffee Morning.

Ruth Parsons holds a fantastic coffee morning is aid of macmillan cancer support.

Fundraisers, volunteers and the people of Kidsgrove have been busy raising lots of money for charity today.  The Macmillan Cancer support event is held in the UK each year raising thousands of pounds for the charity to support people in need. 

Firstly I visited Linda Blunt at her home.  She baked hundreds of cakes and treats for friends, family and passersby and opened her home for the day.  Linda who works at the local Tesco is well known for her charity work and always makes a real difference to people’s lives.  Keep those cakes baking Linda and we will keep coming back!  I am hoping to have Linda officially recognised in the near future for her dedication to charity work.

After my first visit feeling rather full, my next stop was the Parson’s family home.  I was faced with even more glorious baking and cakes were bursting out of the room.  After having a good catch up with John and Janet I had ago of guess the amount of coffee beans in the jar.  One thing I would like to say is how proud I am of Ruth.  Ruth Parsons was diagnosed with Leukaemia this year but instead of sitting at home feeling sorry for herself she’s taken the bull by its horns and raised hundreds of pounds for charity.  What an inspiration she really is doing so much for a good cause.  Best wishes, Kyle Robinson.

  1. I have just read the info on pricing for Kidsgrove Clough Hall Bonfire this Saturday and my jaw dropped as to how on earth whoever prices these events can seriously think the people of Kidsgrove can afford to attend. I then viewed Betley firework display prices for this year,2013, and was astonished to find they are cheaper BUT the price includes entertainment such as fire-breathers and fire-jugglers and a display by one of Europes professional display companies. Considering the attendees of Betley bonfire will be in a better financial position than The Kidsgrove community I am yet again astonished that these inflated prices have been allowed. I am also informed that Fenton fireworks which is an extravagant and amazing firework display is only £5 for adults,a family ticket been £15. The local community of Kidsgrove have been sorely let down this year and I for one will not be attending with my family of 5. Has it been forgotten that we have a local food bank in Kidsgrove and for good reason too !

    • Hi Jane

      I agree but did you know the prices have changed? £12 for a family of 4 and £3 for an extra person.

      The reason the event was originally expensive was because the rotary thought they would have to pay a private security company but this has changed.

      Hope you can make it.

      Best wishes


  2. The prices have changed because of the rain.
