Charity social evening raises £700 for Stroke Association

Droitwich Editorial 3rd Oct, 2014 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016   0

AROUND £700 was raised for the Stroke Association during a charity social evening at Ombersley Cricket and Bowls Club.

It was organised by Charlie Hodges, 72, who lost his wife to a stroke 12 years ago and started fund-raising for the cause after asking for donations for his 70th birthday.

Charlie, whose mother also died recently following a stroke, has now raised more than £5,000 for the charity.

He said the event in Ombersley was fantastic.

“Many thanks to Dawn and all the ladies at the cricket club who provided a tremendous buffet in the evening whilst listening to Matthew Long, vocalist, and to Eric who operated a barbecue all afternoon and evening.

“Fund-raising for the Stroke Association gives me hope that other families will not have to suffer this loss in the future.”

Charlie’s next fund-raiser will be a Fish and Chip Supper in Rushwick on October 25.
