Our Current Charities

MAD Friends decided this year to support a variety of charities. We started off with a Cup Cake day in support of Alzheimers.  An amazing £174 was raised.  The cupcakes went down very well!!

Next we chose to support Parkinson’s with one of our  famous cricket matches at Streetly Cricket Club.  Another great turn out, raffle, afternoon tea and a lively game of cricket saw a total of £810 raised. Thanks to Rob and Craig Wain for organising the cricket teams.

 

Our Main Focus

The main focus of MAD Friends for the near future is the raising of funds to go towards the purchase of a portable CT scanner for the Queen Elizabeth hospital. This is in support of Sharon McCullagh – one of the MAD Friends who suffered a brain aneurysm and was treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital before moving to Good Hope hospital where she is awaiting transference to Moseley Hall to continue her rehabilitation.

UPDATE: we are pleased to say that Sharon has now been transferred to a specialist rehabilitation unit in Leamington Spa and is responding well to her treatment.
