Silky Sunday's Disco Celebrates Third Anniversary This Evening

2 September 2018

Back in September 2015, Macclesfield Town had the very great honour of hosting the inaugural "Silky Sundays Disco". 

The idea was the brainchild of five diehard Silkmen fans who wanted to out something back into the community by creating a regular event which catered specifically for people who suffered with learning and physical disability. 

Darren Broderick, Rob Stirling, Dean Holmes and Marie Grundy - together with Andy and Sean Worth got to work to work to turn their dream into reality. 

Almost instantly the event proved to be an unqualified success, as service users from throughout the local area flocked to the Moss Rose every Sunday evening. 

As the weeks went by, word started to get around and before long, the McIlroy Suite became packed to the rafters with people who otherwise would have struggles to attend such events. 

Three years on and Silky Sundays popularity has not dwindled - meaning that vast numbers of people who suffer various disabilities can let their hair down in a relaxed and safe environment every single week. 

If anyone has had the pleasure of attending one of these fabulous events, then you will not need telling that the sheer joy on the faces of so many people really is something to behold. 

Co-Founder Andy Worth stated - 

"The opportunity to facilitate Silky Sundays every week provides community presence, community participation and a real sense of inclusion for individuals who have historically experienced exclusion. 

 

"The club are really promoting several hours of dignity, respect and quality time for this vulnerable service user group 

"Silky Sundays is a truly feel-good event, which consistently elicits a sense of pride from those who organise it" 

We would like to pay tribute to the incredible work which has been carried out by the Silky Sundays team in creating this much loved and valuable focal point of the local community over the last three years. 

Roll on the next three and many more besides!
