Cafe raises a glass to Jago Foundation

The Gusher’s next fundraiser for The Jago Worrall Foundation will be an art evening held at the Evergreen Art Cafe in Daventry.

It will be held on Thursday June 6 and plans are still being formalised for the event but there are plans for music, art, and wine tasting. There are also ideas in the pipeline for live painting and a charity auction from some well-known artists.

Simon Williams, who owns the cafe and gallery, said: “We like to get involved in the 
community and help local charities and causes.

“When we read about Jago and his family, it was one of those stories that you couldn’t help but want to get involved with.

“We’re still finalising the plans, but we’ve got wine tasting and we’ll be introducing Audible Fidelity whose stereos we’ll soon be selling.

“We’re looking to get some artists in to do live art and we’re hoping other businesses will donate for the auction,” he added.

The foundation was set up to help two-year-old Jago Worrall from Welton. He was left with severe brain injuries following an accident at his family home.

His parents, Barney and Lyn, are fundraising to ensure he receives physiotherapy and care. At the end of last month, his parents bought him back home to help his recovery.

It is the not the only thing that the Evergreen Art Cafe is doing in aid of The Jago Worrall Foundation. Members of staff at the cafe are set to do a skydive in the summer in a bid to raise further funds.

More details about the art evening will be released nearer the time.
