Charity’s help inspires Thorpe Edge grandfather to hold Bradford event
9:00am Wednesday 5th March 2014 in News
A grandad who is raising money for a charity that helped save his grandson’s life is asking people to wear yellow on Friday.
The community worker, who changed his name to Muppett by deed poll, is organising a music night at The Castle pub in Bradford in aid of the Children’s Liver Foundation’s Big Yellow Friday event.
As well as music there will be a raffle and an auction. Prizes and auction lots would be welcome to help boost funds on the night.
Muppett, of Thorpe Edge, has already raised almost £4,000, split between the charity and Leeds General Infirmary where his grandson, Amos Harker, is treated.
When Amos was born, doctors discovered he had biliary atresia, a rare condition where the common bile duct between the liver and small intestine becomes blocked. Amos and his family got lots of support from the Children’s Liver Foundation.
Anyone wanting to support Big Yellow Friday can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
