Margot our patron very kindly donated money for the buffet and made bids for lots at the auction. She joined Rachel and Julie at their table. We raised an amazing £5034.
The David Lloyd Centre at Brierley Hill, let us stage the event there. Over 150 people attended. The staff at David Lloyd were great helping us to set up the tables. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. Bob the DJ and auctioneer was brilliant.
Well done and a massive thankyou to the Stourbridge firemen who had a sponsored head shave.
White Watch at Stourbridge Fire Station stepped out for FOP ACTION and decided to have their heads shaved to raise funds for us. Sheryll met up with Fire Officer, Jamie Wilkes earlier in the year, during the Saturday Car Wash for FOP. Jamie offered further help and said he would be in touch. True to his word, even though he has a very busy schedule at the Station, he rallied his colleagues round and with arms twisted, persuaded them to go ‘bald eagle’ for FOP.
Local hairdressers, Amanda Woodall and Sandra, from Headroom, Enville Street, Stourbridge offered help with with headshave. Mark Noott, opted for the mohican look and others looked on in anticipation.
Sheryll got them all a bobble hat to keep warm! Officer, Jamie Wilkes is wearing Lucys’ hat with a bow.
These men are absolute stars. When the bells ring, they never know what horrors and sadness might await them, yet they are always ready to stop forward and help others. White Watch a huge thankyou from all patients, families and friends. You have helped us raise awareness for FOP and much needed research funds. Sheryll and Lucy and all FOP families xxxx
