A couple who staged a garden party at their home on Westfield Drive,Wistaston, helped raise valuable funds for diabetes sufferers.

Sheena and Ken Sambrook opened their house and gardens for the event which takes place on the second Wednesday in July.

The couple are president and treasurer respectively of the Crewe and South Cheshire Voluntary Group of Diabetes UK

Entrance was 50p which included a coffee or tea, while strawberries, cakes, greetings cards and plants were also available for sale, along with bring and buy and raffle stalls.

Dozens of people attended, including Mayor of Cheshire East Councillor George Walton and Mayoress Veronica Walton, along with the new Wistaston Rose Queen Daisy Wybrow and her attendant Emma Bishop.

Bryan Bossons, chairman of Crewe and South Cheshire Voluntary Group of Diabetes UK, said: “We would like to thank Ken and Sheena for the use of their house and gardens. We would also like to thank everyone who has supported the event.”

All proceeds will go to support newly diagnosed children and adolescents with diabetes to allow them to attend educational residential holidays around the UK.

This allows them to integrate with other youngsters with diabetes, share experiences, and help teach them how to control their condition.

On average the Crewe and South Cheshire Voluntary Group raises £7,500 a year for Diabetes UK.
