Saturday 10th March 2018
At the invitation of the Mayor of Shrewsbury, Cllr Jane Mackenzie, Veronica and I attended the Purple Tie & Tiara Ball held at the Shrewsbury Town Football Club. We greatly enjoyed the evening which was for the benefit of the Mayor’s Charity Fund, a group of charities combatting alcohol and drug addiction. Following a recorded message from Russell Brand, the speaker was Chip Somers, an ex-addict himself, who has been working with the problems caused by drug and alcohol addiction for over 30 years. This was a most enjoyable evening in support of an excellent cause.
