March out in Cheshire and clock up Miles for Macmillan

Macmillan Cancer Support

Macmillan Cancer Support are hoping anyone looking to get fit for summer will join us and take on the Cheshire walk on Sunday 5th August 2012 to back Miles for Macmillan. The nationwide walking programme, organised with support from Boots UK, aims to raise £1.8million for people affected by cancer.

The 10 mile route which starts and finishes at Lymm Rugby Club will walk round the picturesque Dam, through Lymm village, Slitten Gorge, along a section of the Trans Pennine Trail and back along the Bridgewater Canal to the Rugby Club.  The terrain is fairly flat, but there are a few steps and styles to cross over so unfortunately this route is not suitable for anyone on wheels.

WalkersView more details of the event.

For anyone recently recovering from treatment who may find 10 miles too much of a challenge, then why not mark your steps to recovery by joining our shorter 2 mile fundraising walk lapping Lymm Dam twice.  This has pathways all the way round and so is also suitable for wheelchair users and pushchairs (thus making a great walk for all new mums or dads whose precious little one is  just a bit too young to be carried round the 10 mile route).  All walkers can then return to the Rugby Club and enjoy a beverage in the club house and cheer in the 10 milers back to the club.

This is a perfect opportunity to join in with the carnival atmosphere of a Miles For Macmillan walk, whilst also giving yourself a personal physical challenge and raising some vital funds for a great cause.

It couldn’t be easier to take part, simply register on our website and help fund the Macmillan therapists, nurses and support line workers who make sure people living with cancer have the best team in their corner, every step of the way.

About Macmillan Cancer Support

Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face. But you don’t have to go through it alone. The Macmillan team is with you every step of the way.

We are the nurses and therapists helping you through treatment. The experts on the end of the phone. The advisers telling you which benefits you’re entitled to. The volunteers giving you a hand with the everyday things. The campaigners improving cancer care. The fundraisers who make it all possible. More than one in three of us get cancer. Two million of us are living with it. If you are affected by cancer Macmillan can help.

We are Macmillan Cancer Support.

Visit or call the Macmillan Support Line 0808 8080000.

Macmillan Cancer Support and Boots UK

Macmillan Cancer Support and Boots UK are working together to improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer. Through the partnership, Boots is introducing training for its pharmacists, healthcare colleagues and No7 advisors to help deliver more ways for people affected by cancer to get information and support on the high street, in local communities and online. Boots colleagues and customers have already raised £4 million for Macmillan over two years. For more information, visit

Lymm Village Hall Playgroup’s Good Eggs of Lymm Competition 2012

Following a brilliant display of Lymm’s artistic talent in Sainsbury’s in the week leading up to Easter, Lymm Village Hall Playgroup were proud to announce that the winner of the  inaugural Good Eggs of Lymm Competition 2012 was The Coffee House (see image below). 

Lymm Village Hall Playgroup There were over 500 votes lodged at Sainsbury's and the level of enthusiasm for the event was fantastic. So much so that, by popular demand, the Eggs will be displayed for an ongoing period at Lymm Village Library. The event raised £1,000 for the Playgroup which operates as a charity and is hugely reliant on fundraising.

Clare McKenna, this years Chairperson of the Playgroup, presented the unique trophy to the winners at a Presentation by the Cross on Good Friday. She acknowledged and thanked all involved in the event including all of those local businesses and everybody was involved in the competition, from those who bought and decorated eggs, the people who helped with the display, the local press, playgroup staff and of course all of those people who voted. 

The Coffee House was presented with a stunning glass egg designed and made by local artist Matthew Bate whom the Playgroup would also like to thank for this wonderful contribution to the event.

Regarding the success of the event Clare said ‘This is the Playgroup's 40th year it has been quite humbling for us to see how the people of Lymm have responded to another one of our fundraising events by joining together to support our competition and at the same time raise much needed funds. It is extremely heart-warming! We would very much like to think that we have started a new Lymm tradition.’
