A quiet sale on the fatstock side on Tuesday, although dairy and calf vendors took an opportunity of a buoyant trade. Calves continued to be in keen demand with British Blue bulls to £360 and Limousin heifers to £377. The loss of Monday sales resulted in attendance of two Leicestershire uyers who gave a good boost to demand. A shortage of lambs led to a sharp increase in trade with standard quality quotation at a whisker under £2 average. Dairy Cattle topped £2,150 for newly calved heifers with an entry of 27 heifers meeting an average of £1,540. Barren cows saw an entry of plainish sorts with a top price of 134p with a market average of 110p. The next two weeks see two entries of dairy herds in that section.
Relay challenge raises over £15k
A crowd gathered to congratulate the last of McCarthy and Stone’s 200 employees as they crossed the finishing line of a gruelling 1,300-mile relay challenge last week.
The celebrations soon followed after it was announced the relay, which started in Newquay and finished in Forres, raised more than £15k for children’s charity, Barnardo’s.
The sponsored event was organised by the UK’s retirement developer, McCarthy and Stone, as art of its commitment to raise at least £50,000 for Barnardo’s this year. The initiative kicked off last month and the relay teams have travelled the length and breadth of the country, walking, running, cycling, horse riding and even kayaking, carrying the iconic Barnardo’s Bear as the mascot.
Steve Secker, regional managing director for McCarthy and Stone, commented: “I would like to say a big thank you to all those involved. All money raised will now go towards helping Barnardo’s provide much needed support for over 190,000 children across 800 projects nationally.”
OVER THIRTY MONTH STOCK (26): overage clean topped the market at 134p for Friesians (133p). Best Friesian cows at 125p with grade two Cows to 115p. Grade three cows to 104p. Top price of the day £887.50 with a market average of £661.
DAIRIES (39): a smashing entry for a bank holiday of 32 milkers plus seven calves met a strong trade which saw the best to £2,150 and calves to £420. Top call went to Mr D Higgott of Northampton for a heifer giving 26kg with others to £2,100 from Messrs Robinson of Upper Hulme and £2,040 from Messrs Peach of Warslow. Cows peaked at £1,500 for a second calver from Messrs Gadsbey of Yarlet. Young calves were a good trade with the best to £420 from Mr C Sherwin of Sproston. First quality heifers to £2,150 (£1,972) second quality heifers to £1,790 (£1,665); second quality cows to £1,500 (£1,500).
BUTCHERS’ LAMBS (208): The brave were favoured with light lambs to £2 (191p). Standardweights to 204p (193p) with mediumweights to 218p and 214p (196p). Heavy lambs to 170p. Top price lamb £93.30. Quality prices, lambs: premium 218p (214p); prime 208p (200p); commercial 170p (168p).

Charity cyclists fuelled by elly babies and Queen hits
The Chronicle, Thursday, 7th June, 2012. www.chronicleseries.co.uk 7
A local disabled charity has received £1,200 from staff at Congleton Leisure Centre, who recently cycled non-stop for two hours.
But the fund-raisers did not leave the building — they were on the leisure centre’s exercise bikes with bags of jelly babies and Queen’s hits to keep them going.
The cycle was held recently to raise money for Macclesfield Wheelies, a group that provides disabled children and adults with opportunities to access wheelchair sports and activities.
A normal spinning class at the leisure centre lasts 45
and even that is enough to leave most people breathless, so the two-hour class was a big ask.
Twenty-three cyclists took art and collected sponsorship from family, friends and colleagues. They had hoped to raise at least £230, but smashed their target by bringing in £1,200. The money was handed to members of the group on Thursday.
Leisure centre studio cycling instructors Judith Boston and Mike Roche kept cyclists motivated with a variety of exercise sessions and a supply of jelly abies. Members of Wheelies were also at the leisure centre to support the cyclists. Nine-year-old Harvey Osbourne started the cyclists off with his own dance routine for Queen’s “Don’t stop me now.”
Everyone involved thanked Congleton Leisure Centre for allowing the event to take place, and leisure centre manager Lee Jackson for supporting the fundraiser.
Wheelies meet every Saturday morning at Tytherington High School. For more information visit macclesfieldwheelies.org.uk or call Angela Osborne on 07799034842.

NHS workers win praise at awards
“Inspirational” NHS workers celebrated their achievements at the North West Adult Learners Awards.
Winners ranged from 80-yearold Jennifer Blunt, who was honoured for her lifelong advocacy for people with learning disabilities, to 35-year-old Moses Kwamira, who since his arrival from war-torn Uganda has let nothing stop him in his determination to work as a healthcare assistant.
The awards are the culmination of the annual adult learners’ week, run by the National Institute for Adult Continuing Education to celebrate those who have improved their lives through education and personal development.
In the North West, the institute runs the awards in partnership with NHS North West, and six categories were devoted to those working in health and social care.
