Oldbury fundraiser bags £700 for charities
2:51pm Tuesday 29th April 2014 in News
AN Easter fun day, organised by an Oldbury mum, raised more than £700 for the hospital and liver disease charity which helped her son.
Stacey Morrall staged the event at the town’s Oak tree Centre in aid of Birmingham Children’s Hospital, where Clayton, now aged 11, underwent experimental treatment to save his life.
The youngster was born with a congenital liver condition called hepatic fibrosis and had special bands fitted around this oesophagus to eliminate the risk of fatal internal bleeding resulting from his condition.
Proceeds from the fundraiser are also going to the Children’s Liver Foundation and family friend Tina Clarke is also in training for the Wombourne Sprint Triathlon to support the charity.
Mrs Morrall, aged 36, of Frankley Road, thanked those who supported the fun day and is now busy helping to promote her friend’s triathlon challenge on Sunday August 31.
The grateful mum is one of a seven-strong team entering the children’s hospital’s Stair Rush challenge to race up 374 stairs on Saturday July 5.
She said: “We just want to raise as much money as possible to help these charities.”
