Welcome to the Macclesfield Charity Beer Festival

Just a quick message to wish you all a Happy New Years for 2015. We are currently working on a new website which we intend to launch early next year.

We recently presented the proceeds to the Crossroads Care Schemes and The Rossendale Trust, with the organisers Trevor Gammage from CAMRA, Chris Leonard the chairman of Macclesfield Round Table and Michael Jones of PR Jones Jewellers in attendance.

As well as a new website we are hard at work planning our 21st Charity Beer Festival which will be held at Macclesfield Rugby Club on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th May 2015. We will be announcing the beneficiary of the 21st Charity Beer Festival when we launch our new website, so stay tuned.

Crossroads Care schemes

Cross Roads

Crossroads Care schemes are a network of 76 local independent charities providing support to carers and the people they care for, often through the provision of flexible breaks. The beer festival will be supporting Cheshire East.

Services are provided through a network of local providers across England and Wales, each offering our core service where a trained carer support worker comes into the home to take over the caring responsibilities.

The aim is to provide support that is consistent and reliable and build long and trusted relationships.

Each local provider is an independent charity which may provide additional services according to funding and demand at a local level.

All local Crossroads Care organisations provide care in the home to enable carers to take a break. The needs of both the carer and the person they care for are assessed and regularly reviewed to ensure the service is tailored to the needs of them both.

The Rossendale Trust

Rossendale Trust

The Rossendale Trust supports people with learning and physical disabilities to lead the very best lives they can.

Fifty-eight people live in apartments at the Trust’s main site, or in one of three other properties located within a few miles of our base at Sutton. We aim to create an environment where everyone is encouraged to reach their full potential. Changes in our care model, from residential care to supported living, enables our tenants to make real choices in their lives, develop in confidence and enjoy increasing independence.

‘Oakwood’ is our popular and growing day service. Open to the whole community, it offers a social activity menu, including media, leisure, swimming, crafts and more! To find out more about our services, click here.
