Hazel’s fundraising for Bosnia

Posted on 08th December 2011 | in Community

Earlier this year I visited Bosnia as a therapist to treat civilian victims of war. I have been asked to return for the opening of the new clinic in Sarajevo. The fund raising activities for my visits are on going.

In April my brother Christopher and my son Jack successfully completed a sponsored one mile swim. David Walliams they are not but, neither was prepared to throw in the towel and be defeated in the eyes of the other. Well done to you both.

A mile is no mean feat. However, a family friend from Leeds, Gemma Priestly, is going to attempt a 4km swim (two and a half miles) at the Granary Leisure Complex on 17th December. If anyone would like to sponsor her, please view www.mycharitypage.com and look for ‘gemsgemz’ sponsored swim. Good Luck Gemma.

Last month my nephew Shaun Stewart, formerly from Amble, endured a one and a half hour sponsored body waxing session (from two therapists simultaneously – Ouch!!!). A big thank you to Shaun.

Currently I am organising a variety show at the Red Row Working Men’s Club to be held on Saturday 4th February 2012. The venue was kindly offered free of charge for the event. Amongst the line up of singers/musicians are Sue Murray of Angel Foods catering and Gale Keylewer (nee Thompson), also local lads Brian English and Kevin Charlton. Maddie Stuckey from Warkworth has also offered to  perform some of her new songs from her new act ‘Divas of Song’.

Tickets are on sale at £5.00 each. Please ring me on 07943827439 for availability.

Without the generosity of local people I would be unable to continue my work in Bosnia so, once again, many thanks to you all.
