The Gusher’s second fundraising event to help two-year-old Jago Worrall is unveiled.
An art and wine tasting evening is being hosted by Evergreen Art Cafe in Sheaf Street, Daventry from 7pm to 9.30pm on Thursday, June 13.
It is in support of the Daventry Express campaign to raise funds for the Jago Worrall Foundation. Jago was left with severe brain injuries after nearly drowning in an accident at his Welton home in March last year. His parents, Barney and Lyn, are looking to raise up to £200,000 to help fund his continued treatment and round-the-clock care.
Audible Fidelity, a firm based on the Long March, will also be at the event and will donate 10 per cent of the money they make selling equipment on the night. The cafe will also donate 10 per cent of the proceeds of any paintings sold that night. There will also be a raffle and a charity auction to raise funds for The Jago Worrall Foundation.
Entrance to the event is free although people are encouraged to make donations at the door.
Meanwhile, Little Kickers, which runs football classes for young children in the town, will also be raising funds for the Foundation as part of its third birthday celebrations.
At their training sessions this weekend there is a raffle with prizes including an iPad Mini, a Little Kickers birthday party and sessions and three months’ membership at Daventry Leisure Centre. Proceeds will be donated to the foundation.
The event, which will also be attended by Lenny Kicker, the Little Kickers’ mascot, is at Daventry Leisure Centre from 9am to 1pm on Saturday and Sunday.
