Next Sunday, 16th July, there's going to be a Family Fun Day at Higher Irlam Social Club featuring a bouncy castle, face painting, a lucky dip, stalls, Budgie the magician, children's characters, a photographer doing prints and keyrings, a tombola and raffle featuring great prizes including a signed Manchester United shirt.

The Fun Day is to raise money for the charity Assert, or the Angelman Syndrome Support Education and Research Trust, that supports families of people who have this very rare chromosome disorder.

Angelman Syndrome causes severe learning difficulties, and was only first identified in 1965 by a British doctor, Harry Angelman, with the condition later named after him in 1982.*

Kaidan O'Mahoney , from Irlam, has the Syndrome, and the centrepiece of the Fun Day will see his 12 year old sister, Klariece, have 13 inches of her hair cut off to donate the The Princess Trust for a wig to be made for a child undergoing cancer treatment.

"She actually wanted to shave her hair and has wanted to do this for four years but we talked her out of it" says mum Michelle "They need seven inches or above for wigs to be made for a child with cancer and we'll have 13 inches. Klariece's hair will still be very short but we can also donate quite a lot.

"Generally, the Day is to raise awareness for this really rare Angelman Syndrome, which my son has, and to raise money for Assert, a charity that helps with everything from medical research to support for families" she adds "I've tried to make it as fun as I can!"


Family Fun Day
Sunday 16th July 1pm-5pm
Higher Irlam Social Club
Cutnook Lane M44 6JS

Entrance is just 1

COUNCIL UPS PRICE OF BUILE HILL MANSION PROJECT TO OVER 20MILLION AS PLANS MET WITH SCORN FROM COMMUNITY

Last night, a packed stormy meeting of the Claremont and Weaste Community Committee left Salford City Council in no doubt that any plans to build houses in Buile Hill Park as part of a deal to restore the Grade 2 listed Mansion will be met with fierce opposition.

Salford Council's Assistant Director of the Environment revealed to the meeting that Salford Red Devils Foundation, one of the driving partners of the project, hadn't even signed the controversial Memorandum of Understanding yet and that the 1.6million cost of restoring the Mansion would have to be met with 1million a year to sustain it, giving a figure of over 20million.
