The Town Mayor’s Fundraiser
The Town Mayor, Cllr John Stewart, is hosting a fundraising event for the Bollington Cricket Club cricket nets at Hilltop Country House.
The Town Mayor is donating a table dedicated to our volunteers in the community, who work selflessly for others. He is inviting nominations from members of the public to contact him with their nominees.
Tickets are £35 per person, and can be purchased by table, couple and individual. Tables are of 10 people. There are also a number of tables to be sponsored by local businesses.
Your ticket includes a Bollington bramble cocktail on arrival, a Mediterranean mezze board to start followed by a choice of chicken and chorizo paella or chickpea vegetarian curry. Tea and coffee included.
There will be a raffle and auction taking place on the evening with the chance to win some amazing prizes.
