‘Lots’ of good reasons to support Jago

A number of traders in the town have donated auction lots in the second Gusher event to raise funds for two-year-old Jago Worrall.

They can be bid on at an art and wine tasting evening which is being hosted at the 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. The toddler from Welton was left with severe brain injuries following an accident at his family home last year. His parents Barney and Lyn have been able to bring him home and are now looking to raise up to £200,000 to pay for his treatment and recuperation.

Among the lots available at auction will be a spa day for two at Hellidon Lakes and a limited-edition rucksack filled with goodies from The Hobbit movie starring Martin Freeman.

The cafe is also donating art classes led by professional artist Sarah Graham, and there will even be the chance to buy the shirts off their backs by bidding on outfits from Harpers Boutique.

The Training Shed will be donating some personal training sessions while there will be gift vouchers from Shushak, Manhaus, The Beauty Spot and Audible Fidelity.

The cafe, along with Audible Fidelity, will donate 10 per cent of sales made on the night to the charity. Entrance to the event is free but donations at the door will be encouraged.

Anyone who wishes to donate prizes towards the night can do so by calling the Daventry Express offices on 01327 703383, or the art cafe on 01327 878117.
