Family’s Mexico holiday dream comes true

Our competition to win a dream family holiday to Mexico worth £3,500 has now concluded and we were thrilled to inform Amanda Galvin and family from Walshaw, Bury, that she had bagged the prize for her and her family.

Amanda was picked at random from the hundreds of entries and will enjoy the dream trip with husband Howard, Annie, 10 and Izzy 7, to the dream trip.

The Feeling Hot Hot Hot at The Rock Rock Rock campaign has been running for the past four weeks in conjunction with Key 103 and Thomas Cook. As well as the holiday giveaway we’ve also held smaller competitions each Saturday.

The fun concluded last Saturday (August 19th)  when shoppers could have a go on our spin the wheel game to try and win an instant prize. Unfortunately our plans to use the beach for the competition were scuppered by the British weather – but there were still plenty of smiling faces when the prizes were won from the spin the wheel.

Super Heroes Day to mark Josh’s 17th birthday

Friends and supporters of the Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity came together for a super hero themed day at The Rock to mark Josh’s 17th birthday.

For the second year running, the shopping and leisure destination, hosted a Super Heroes for Super Josh Day to raise funds and awareness for the charity.

Throughout the day, on August 10th, there was face painting, games and visits from Super Man, Spider Man and Wonder Woman to celebrate Super Josh’s birthday.

The Mayor of Bury, Councillor Dorothy Gunther, also attended the event. In total the day raised more than £450 for the cause.

The charity aims to help other families living with childhood brain tumours and post-operative complications.

The Rock’s centre director, Arnold Wilcox-Wood, said: “Super Josh was a regular visitor to The Rock and we are proud to now be involved with his charity, which we have supported for the past few years. Marking Josh’s birthday in super hero style is of course the most fitting way to celebrate and we were pleased see so many visitors enjoying the day.”
