Meeting times

Rochdale Local Committee have joined forces with Heywood Local Committee to form the new HEYWOOD AND ROCHDALE LOCAL COMMITTEE.   We will be holding many events throughout the year, from coffee mornings and lunches to barn dances and musical evenings.  Every single pound that we raise will bring us one step closer to beating cancer but we can't do it without YOUR help.   However you can help - whether that is coming along to our events, donating raffle and auction prizes, volunteering for a few hours or even organising your own fundraising event - it all helps us to raise more money to help beat cancer sooner.    To find out more - please visit www.facebook.com/groups/HeywoodRochdale Committee or contact Kath Hazlehurst 01706 657171 or Margaret Ogden 0`706 642343
