ello – welcome to Totally Stockport’s latest magazine, another packed issue, your guide to what’s happening in Stockport.
What a fantastic few months we have had: Stockport’s Giant Leap Frog Art Trail has been an amazing success, attracting over 30% more people into the town centre throughout the summer and that doesn’t include all the children who came with their families to enjoy and seek out all 22 frogs. But it didn’t stop there! On October 17th the frogs went under the auctioneers hammer and raised an amazing amount of money for Stepping Hill Hospital’s Tree House children’s ward. You can find out more about the auction on pages 20 & 21.
