Charity fundraising night for Rubens Retreat.




After reading the heart breaking story about what Mottram parents Michael & Nicola Graham went through in August 2012 local mum Louise Goodrum decided to help out.  She is organising a charity night to raise money for Reubens Retreat.  A charity set up by Michael & Nicola in memory of their son Rueben.  Its aim is to open a retreat in the North West of England for families who are facing critical or life threatening illnesses.  They also plan to offer support and bereavement counselling.


For more information please see the Reubens Retreat website:




The charity night will take place on Saturday 26th January at St Margaret’s Primary School, Glossop Road, Charlesworth.  Tickets are priced at just £5.  This includes entry, buffet and live music from Bangers ‘n’ Smash starring Missing Persons.  It all starts at 7.30pm and promises to be a fantastic night out.
