Red Wellies receives £2,495
A West Norfolk charity has received an extra donation.
Gordon Chilvers and Steve Barber have raised and donated £2,495 to the Lisa Wiles Red Wellies Brain Tumour Support Fund .
Mr Chilvers, who is a regular supporter of Red Wellies, asked his friends and family to donate money to the worthy cause instead of giving him a 65th birthday present.
On his birthday, he took a party of 50 friends and family to the Boston Gliderdrome, and requested donations and bucket collections, raising around £435.
Steve Barber, who recently lost his wife Lyn, otherwise known as Sue, to a brain tumour, raised more than £1495 from donations at her funeral and £565 from a car boot sale.
Red Wellies trustee Mervyn Wiles said: “On behalf of Red Wellies, I thank Gordon and Steve sincerely for their kind support.”
Mr Chilvers’ next fundraising venture is a Charity Soul Night, featuring Diane Shaw and her band and supporting artists. The event is to take place at Corn Exchange, King’s Lynn, on September 9, 7.30pm to 1am. Tickets £15 from Corn Exchange box office.
