Two Rachels “go crazy” for charity


TWO friends both named Rachel are, in their own words,  “going crazy” to help a local children’s charity.
Actor Rachel Priest, from Appleton and musician Rachel Bourke, from Lymm, aim to go trekking across Peru in November to raise £6,000 for the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) at Millington.
But first they need to raise £600 sponsorship – and that’s where they hope local businesses and organisations will help out.
They have launched the “24 in 24” campaign – they hope they can persuade 24 local firms and organisations to donate just £24 each.
In addition, the two Rachels are embarking on a programme of events to raise funds, starting on March 10 with a “Cabaret for CAFT” at Cairo Street Unitarian Chapel in Warrington.
Rachel Bourke said: “It is one of the most beautiful venues we have ever come across.
“We will be having an amazing group of artists coming together to put on an amazing show.”
The two Rachels are also planning an afternoon tea party, a knitathon, a video blog, etc, etc.
Rachel Bourke added: “CAFT is a local charity that does so much for children with special needs and terminal illnesses, so we are working really hard in order to try and get as much raised as we can!”
Anyone who helps with the “24 in 24” campaign will be baked a special cake and also invited to a special VIP event after the Rachels return from their adventure.
Musician Rachel Bourke has toured all over the UK under the stage name “Little Rach” after starting her musical career at The Venue, in Lymm.
Rachel Priest is shortly to appear in an ITV drama “In the Dark” and also appears in the Four O’Clock Club on CBBC.
