Cheadle MP Mark Hunter comments  “It was a pleasure to visit this fantastic local project again, which has gone from strength to strength. Through a successful partnership between Hazel Grove Baptist Church, the local Council and Stockport Homes, many people across the Borough who are in need of furniture and electrical items are helped.”

“I was pleased to hear that, despite these difficult economic times, people from all over the area are still donating items in great numbers.”
