An Astley Bridge councillor has once again joined her neighbour to create bows for a good cause.

Cllr Hilary Fairclough and her neighbour, Lynn Elcoat, owner of Classy Wrap in Sharples, have partnered up to create the bows for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The bows are designed to be displayed on front doors and the duo are hoping to raise money for Bolton Hospice and The Christie.

Cllr Fairclough said she and Lynn have previously created bows for Ukraine, rainbow bows for Fortalice and the Royal British Legion at remembrance.

The Bolton News: Bows for the Queen's Jubilee

She said: "We have been doing bows to raise funds for various charities starting at lockdown with rainbow bows for Fortalice, we have done them for the Royal British Legion at remembrance and Ukraine at the start or the war.

"We had always intended to do something special for the Queens Jubilee and decided on the two charities because sadly one way or another most of us have experienced the superb service both provide.

"Lynn who runs a business called classy wrap has worked so hard to produce so many bows and we have had an excellent response.

"We are doing the traditional red white and blue ones but also the official colours purple silver and white, both are going very well but we are experiencing some shortage of ribbon now so if any of your readers have an odd roll of florists ribbon in our colours we would be very grateful.

"So get in the jubilee mood and display a bow on your door, or your gate, these bows brighten up any area and raise much needed funds for these two wonderful charities.

Bows are priced at £5 each and and can be bought from Cllr Fairclough or at Classy Wraps, 11 Sharples Avenue, BL1 7HB.
