Members of Crewe & Nantwich U3A were joined by MP Edward Timpson at the group’s 21st birthday celebrations – which raised £660 in the process.

Mr Timpson was joined by Cllr Dennis Straine-Frances, Mayor of Crewe, and more than 150 U3A members and friends at the event at Crewe Alex FC.

There was a buffet meal, entertainment provided by musical trio, the Gatsby Gang, and close-up magician Pete Turner.

Dave Jinkinson, chair of Crewe and Nantwich U3A, said: “This was a particularly good event as it helped to raise £660 for Alzheimer’s.

“There will be an ongoing series of further fundraising U3A events over the next few weeks, towards the final fundraising total.”
