Goldrick's Back Woman of Rochdale

Goldrick’s Back the Rochdale Woman of the Year Award

Heywood community fundraisers, Mike and Debbie Goldrick have once again put their mark on this year’s Women of Rochdale luncheon.  However, 2018 will not only see Goldrick Blinds sponsoring the event to the tune of £1,000.  This year will also prove another proud moment for these local charity supporters as their daughter,  local business woman, Mel Caffrey, take her place on the all-female committee that selects the winner of the coveted title of Rochdale, Woman of the Year.

“We’ve supported the Hospice for many years; we know the work of the doctors, nurses and volunteers is important to so many in the borough.  Mel being asked onto the committee was great, she is an ideal choice as she’s local, a working mum and involved on many levels with initiatives in the local community, so a great judge of the sort of attributes a Woman of Rochdale should have.  She also organized the event for Springhill for a number of years, so she’s got a great knowledge of previous winners and the good work they do”.

Talking about the Goldrick’s contributions, Hospice Chief Executive Julie Halliwell said “We’re thrilled that Mike and Debbie at Goldrick Blinds are supporting this event again, they’re backing adds to the prestige of the Woman of Rochdale award.  And as for the committee inviting Mel to join them, well they couldn’t have made a better choice.”

 Another new-comer to this year’s event the Hospice would like to thank is local building contractor Jackson and Jackson, who will be sponsoring a sparkling prosecco reception before the Woman of Rochdale luncheon which will definitely help to put a little fun and fizz into the proceedings.

This year’s Woman of Rochdale Luncheon takes place of Friday 27th April within the Great Hall at Rochdale Town Hall with special guest speaker, Joanna Rowsell Shand MBE, former World Champion and Gold Medal Olympic Cyclist at London 2012 and Rio 2016.
