More support for Variety
Published on: 30 Jan 2017
DOWNEND charity stalwart Dave Hook is continuing his mission to raise money for a minibus to help underprivileged children.
Dave, who performs a tribute act as Rod Stewart, held a raffle at one of his gigs at Wroxall Abbey Estate in Warwickshire over Christmas.
The money raised - £620 - will go to the children's charity Variety, of which Dave is an Ambassador.
Variety chairman Derek Claverdon and his wife Pauline attended the gig along with vice chair Anne Keen Arnold and committee members Colin and Sue Sperrings.Winners of the top prize - a luxury Scottish hamper to go with the Rod Stewart theme - were Gareth Rosser and Sammy Bundy.
The money will go towards a Variety minibus which will take disadvantaged and disabled children in the region on day trips.
Dave and wife Tracy have also donated a signed Bristol Rovers T-shirt which is being raffled by Andy Hunt at Swinton Insurance in Kingswood. Tickets can be bought at the branch. The draw is on January 31.
