For those of you who don’t know Steve, he was one of the founder board members of the Foxes Trust. In December 2005 he suffered a massive stroke which left him unable to walk, use his right arm or speak. He was 37, married, and has three young sons.
Since his stroke, Steve has been having physio and speech therapy several times each week. He is now able to walk and has a limited vocabulary, which is an amazing achievement in just over a year.However, he has just been told that his NHS physio is to stop and so this will now need to be privately funded in order for him to continue to improve. This will cost approximately £5000 each year.
To help contribute towards this expense, a Quiz Night and Disco is being held on Friday 25th May 2007 at The 1884 Sports Bar which is at the Walkers Stadium, from 8pm until 1am.
Teams participating in the quiz must contain a maximum of 6 members. Tickets for the event are £10 each and every penny will go directly to Steve’s fund.
You can purchase tickets from the Foxes Trust office located at the ground, directions can be found here: http://foxestrust.co.uk/site/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=207&Itemid=42
Tickets will only be available prior to the Derby game (6th April) 1.15 – 2.15pm and the Norwich game (14th April) 1.30- 2.30pm…..
If you would like to purchase tickets and are unable to make either of these times, please contact Lisa Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org for alternative methods.
If you are unable to attend the event, but would still like to contribute to Steve’s fund, details of how you can do this can be found here: http://www.barkerross.co.uk/thestevesmithfund/Donations.htm
If you are able to offer assistance in any other way – maybe you work for a company who would be willing to donate a raffle prize?, then please contact Lisa using the details above.
It would be great to see you all there, stretching your brains and strutting your stuff!
