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

25MILLION FOR NINE PENDLETON BLOCKS AS PUBLIC MEETING CALLED ON FIRE SAFETY

Salford City Council is set to borrow 25million in order to sort its nine Pendleton high rises, after they failed consecutive Government fire safety tests. Who ultimately pays for the work, a Council report states, is "likely to be the subject of dispute", although it believes that Pendleton Together is liable.

Meanwhile a public meeting for residents will take place next Tuesday, 22nd August at Salford Arts Theatre, with speakers from the Justice4Grenfell Campaign, Salford City UNISON and the Fire Brigades Union.

UNISON ACCUSES SALFORD COUNCIL OF LYING TO JUSTIFY SHUTTING DISABLED KIDS HOME

'INACCURACIES' AND 'LIES' IN COUNCIL ATTEMPT TO SHUT THE GRANGE AS STRIKE BALLOT LOOMS

Next week, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, will make a decision on whether or not to shut The Grange, Salford's only residential care home for disabled children.

The Council report recommending the closure has been slated in new counter reports from both the families of children at The Grange and Salford UNISON, which accuses the Council of 'inaccuracies', including over unfilled places... "The so-called lack of demand for The Grange is a lie to justify a cut" it states. The report adds that UNISON members "are willing to consider industrial action in defence of their jobs".
