Ian and Sue Farrington decided to hold a celebration event when Ian reached his 5-year cancer free milestone.  And to thank the doctors and nurses for their care they decided to raise some funds for Get A-Head at the same time.

Their event was held on Saturday 28th March at the Bentley Moor Club in Walsall and they were joined by over 60 family and friends who wanted to help celebrate Ian’s milestone.

There was a disco and a buffet was laid on for the guests and Ian & Sue had organised a Raffle, which included a £25 voucher donated by the local Tesco store, and Tombola.  They also held a Name the Get A-Head Teddy Bear competition.  However the star item was a Birmingham City Football Club football signed by the legend Trevor Francis, which Ian auctioned on the night.

A lovely evening was had by all and a fantastic £500 was raised by everybody for Get A-Head.  Sue said afterwards; “It was an emotional evening and so nice that everybody came to join the celebration.  And to raise £500 for Get A-Head made it even more emotional”.
