Bradford Royal Infirmary baby unit to benefit from Oakenshaw fundraiser
4:00pm Friday 6th September 2013 in News
A club that has raised more than £8,000 for the special care baby unit at Bradford Royal Infirmary is to host another fundraising event for it.
Members of Salthorn Working Men’s Club in Oakenshaw have raised the cash over the past decade through charity events, raffles and dropping their change in collection tubs at the bar.
And when the Armitage Road club hosts its latest event on Saturday, September 14, a cheque for £3,000 – raised over the past two years – will be handed over to the unit.
Organiser Stephen Clavin, who is bar steward at the club, raises money for the unit as a thank you for the help they gave his daughter Stephanie Haddy, who was born prematurely.
Stephanie, who turns 30 next June, weighed just 2lb 4oz when she was born at BRI.
The event next weekend will feature a male singer, bingo, raffles and tombola. It starts at 7.30pm and costs £3 to get in.
