Since scouting in Telford for Miss Shropshire I have been jotting up ideas for my next charity event.
The idea is to arrange another variety show, but this time it will be in memory of a special friend who sadly lost his life during August this year. Justin Fraser, the manager of Couture nightclub in Stafford died of natural causes, his heart gave out due to an ARVC (you can see further information on this disease on www.bhf.org.uk). It is a rare genetic heart condition affecting young people under 40 which is passed on from one parent to their children. The British Heart Foundation is the charity Justin’s family would now like money that is raised in his memory to go to in order to help others affected by the condition. Along with my Mom and Justin’s Brother Ryan, I have looked at organising a variety show full of different kinds of entertainment around Valentine’s Day before hand over my crown and title, Miss Black Country, with the theme being Hearts (For the British HEART Foundation). This is just an idea, but a charity event to raise money for the British Heart Foundation in memory of Justin Fraser is in working progress. (Photo above: My Mom, Tracey and our friend Justin Fraser)
If anybody has some quirky charity ideas that they would like to pass on which will help us raise a fabulous amount of money for the British Heart Foundation they would be much appreciated. We are ruling out ideas like Skydives, Bungee Jumps and any similar charity events that require a fee which will take a chunk out of the money raised for the charity.
