Macpac sponsor East Cheshire Hospice Art Fair 2016

The East Cheshire Hospice is a wonderful organisation that provides free care to those suffering from life limiting illnesses in the local community. The hospice needs £7500 per day to be viable and less than 20% of this amount is received directly from government. Fund raising is vital for the continued existence of the hospice. As a local business we are delighted and very proud to be able to once again offer our support and sponsorship to such a worthy cause.

The biennial art fair raised in excess £55,000 of much needed funds in 2014 and we are aiming to surpass that total this year. Since its inception in 1999 the art fair has become one of the most prestigious visual arts and craft exhibitions in the North West. Once again it will be held at Macclesfield Town Hall 16 September – 25 September. Local and regional artists will feature their work alongside that of others throughout the UK. Every artist donates 35% from the proceeds of any work they sell.

Visitors to the fair will have the opportunity to buy a wide variety of artistic works from ceramics, sculpture  and paintings to textiles jewellery and woodcraft and all in the knowledge that they have contributed to maintaining the great works performed at the hospice.
