Pub gives its support to our Jago appeal
A Daventry pub has dedicated its fundraising efforts towards helping two-year-old Jago Worrall and his foundation.
The youngster from Welton was left with severe brain injuries following an accident at his home where he drowned.
His parents Lyn and Barney are now looking to bring him home from a specialist centre in Surrey where he is currently receiving treatment. They are looking to raise up to £200,000 to help with his rehabilitation at home.
The manager of the pub, Kieran Healey, said: “We have a series of ongoing fundraising events such as quiz nights at the pub.
“We were looking for a local cause to raise some funds for and we saw this in the Daventry Express and thought this would be a good one to raise money for.”
Mr Healey added: “We are looking to have some bigger events in the year. We haven’t got anything lined up yet but it is something we hope we can announce soon.”
Gusher editor David Summers said: “This is a great boost to the appeal and we are very grateful to the pub for its support.”
As well as youngsters from Welton a fantastic £400 was raised for the campaign at a Valentine’s dinner last week.
The event was organised by members of Daventry Methodist Church which holds such a dinner each year.
In a bid to raise further funds for The Jago Worrall Foundation, the Daventry Express will be hosting a quiz night on Friday March 8 at Daventry Leisure Centre in Lodge Road. Among the prizes that can be won at the event include a family ticket to Legoland and bowling for a family of four at Hellidon Lakes.
There will also be a raffle where prizes including afit ness membership for a year at Daventry Leisure Centre worth £500. A huge thank you to all of the businesses and individuals who have donated prizes or money towards the campaign.
