Beauty Benefits held a successful and well-attended evening for clients and friends, who enjoyed demonstrations and makeovers from a celebrity makeup artist while raising £600 for the League of Friends of Bridgnorth Hospital. Margaret Veal MBE, the League’s vice president and founder member said upon being presented with the cheque, “Thank you very much for your generous donation, Alison and all your staff.”
The League also received a donation of £10,000 from the Aberdovey Bike Ride funds, having been nominated as one of the charities by Tony Seeley, who rode the race in a super-fast time on behalf of the Hospital. And there was another cycling fundraiser when Bridgnorth Cycling Club raised £157 following a Reliability Ride around Shropshire involving over 60 cyclists. Members of the club turned out on Sunday before one of their regular weekend rides to present a cheque to Hospital coffee shop manager Verena Swinnerton.
