Yesterday evening proved another absolute delight for chocolate lovers when for the eleventh year running, Slattery Chocolatier and Patissier in Whitefield held their fantastic Christmas Chocolate Extravaganza in aid of MedEquip4Kids.

As well as being treated to copious free samples of Slattery’s much-loved chocolates, guests had the opportunity to take part in baking activities, guess the weight of a polar bear cake, chocolate snowman and chocolate pudding cake, and have a go at the famous tombola.  Mince pies and mulled wine were also served, adding to the festive atmosphere.

This year we were delighted to welcome an amazing 290 visitors, which is a testament to Slattery’s excellent reputation and to the hard work all the staff put into making the event a success. We’d like to thank everyone for their patience, as we appreciate the queues got busy at times. Since the proceeds from the ticket sales go directly to MedEquip4Kids, the event’s popularity means more funds were raised to help us support children in hospital, improving their health and wellbeing.

One of our guests, Emma Deighan, says: “Thanks so much for a lovely “sweet” evening at the Slattery Extravaganza. My husband was thrilled with the box of cakes and chocolate I returned home with and my friends and I had a fantastic evening.”

A special thank you to Madame Mayor of Bury for attending the event, and of course to John Slattery and his team for all their amazing support over the years.

If you’re craving more Slattery’s fare, why not try your luck at winning a Christmas hamper in their raffle? Tickets cost £1 each and all funds will benefit MedEquip4Kids. For details, contact Slattery’s.

“This donation has enabled us to use more varied and useful therapeutic toys and games when working with children and young people with mental health difficulties, as well as using extra clinic rooms which are now more child-friendly. This has helped reduced anxiety about coming to CAMHS and meant that family therapy can be done. Both parents of a 10 year old boy can now attend with their 5 year old as the youngest child can play with our new resources in the waiting room or clinic space. The 10 year old benefited from therapeutic games about thoughts/feelings and we were also able to observe imaginative play for assessment.”
