The owner of a family company staging a show in aid of East Cheshire Hospice has been overwhelmed by the level of local business support.
Adlington-based Intersafety is hoping to raise £5,000 from a special concert at MADS Theatre on Saturday, October 14, at 7.45 pm.
Local Intersafety customers are snapping up tickets and programme sponsorship for ‘Living in the 80s’ by The Cinema Show, which documents significant milestones during that decade.
The instrumental group combine 80s retro sounds with large screen film footage.
Tony Skelton from Intersafety
Intersafety, founded 21 years ago, distributes personal protective equipment, clothing and workplace safety products.
Managing Director Tony Skelton commented: “I’ve been delighted at how willing and generous local businesses have been in supporting the Hospice by co-sponsoring this event with us.
“The charity is held in such high regard in Macclesfield, everyone connects with them at some level. It doesn’t matter who you speak with – someone has had a friend or relative who’s gone through the Hospice process.
“We asked our customers to support this concert and their response has been incredible. If we can raise £5,000, what a great story this is for the town in which we trade.
“All companies recognise the benefits commercially. It sends out a positive message and we’re all aware of our social and corporate responsibility.”
The show captures the dawn of mobile phones, MTV, Live Aid and outrageous 80s fashion.
