The Bull’s Head on Market Street in Ashby-De-La-Zouch, will be hosting a family fun day during EasterSunday (20th April) to help raise money for a six-year-old local boy – Harry Culwick.
Harry and his twin brother Luke were born at 28 weeks due to complications from discordant growth. Harry weighed 1lb 6ozs and nearly died several times. He has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and initially was unable to sit; stand; walk; talk or barelyhold his head up. He is now undergoing Advanced Biochemical Rehabilitation, a treatment which costs £5,300/year.
“I was looking for a local cause to support when we were approached by a good friend of the Culwick family to help raise money for Harry,” said Marie Kelleher, manager of the Bull’s Head. “The team and I were incredibly touched by Harry’s story; hosting this event in his honour was an obvious choice. We have already started encouraging guests to donate money and will be hosting our first raffle during Mother’s Day, prior to our Easter event.”
The team at the Bull’s Head have planned a whole day filled with fun activities for Easter Sunday including a bouncy castle for the little ones; barbeque in the garden; face painting and a second raffle. Team members, as well as Harry’s family and friends, will also be baking delicious desserts to sell in a cake stand, which will be put up at the pub.
Marie continues: “We are a small community but we are also a strong one and it’s great to see so much support from local businesses – several of them have donated prizes for thesecond raffle. We, at the Bull’s Head, will be giving away a meal for four and all proceeds from the activities during our fun day will be given to Harry’s fund.”
