Charity boosted by library event

Have your say

MORE than £100 was raised for a cancer charity at a city library’s event.

Frecheville Library celebrated National Library Day with special refreshments, inviting community groups along and holding a raffle.

More than 120 people attended, raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support, on Friday.

Emma Bramwell, local library information assistant, said: “It was so busy there was standing room only at one point.”

Birley Coun Karen McGowan added: “A special thank you must go to Emma Bramwell for all her hard work in promoting this event and bringing it together.

“A big thank you also for all the donation of cakes and prizes.

“These events don’t just happen – it takes support from those who donate and also those who attend.”
