A recent 24 hour charity "knitathon", organised by Bramhall United Reformed Church, has raised almost £6,000 for St Anns Hospice, Heald Green.

Local MP Mark Hunter, along with the Mayor and Mayoress of Stockport, were guests at the special service, presided over by the Rev. Alan Poolton, held at the church yesterday where a cheque for £5,750.53 was handed over to an Ambassador for St Ann's.

The knitters had raised the money by seeking sponsorship for their round the clock "knitathon" and their efforts were praised by the Cheadle MP on Sunday.

Commenting, Mark said:

"I was delighted to be invited to attend this special service and help celebrate the achievements of raising so much money for such a worthy cause.

"We all know of the excellent work at St Ann's and their need for funds. I congratulate all involved on the "knitathon" who have again demonstrated the great community spirit that exists in our area."
