Haworth hoteliers offer warm welcome for charity night
2:20pm Thursday 9th January 2014 in News
Haworth hoteliers are holding a fundraising night to help young people living with a rare medical condition.
Peter and Leanne Quinn are hosting the January 28 event in tribute to Keighley teenager Amy Knowles, who suffers from the complex disorder.
They hope the festivities at the Old Registry restaurant and rooms in Main Street will raise money for Amy’s fund for research into a cure for the condition.
Amy has a range of ailments that mean the nerves and muscles in her stomach do not work.
She has undergone dozens of operations, and regularly has to spend several months at a time in Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.
Amy’s bravery last year inspired pop star Jessie J to have her hair shaved off during the BBC’s Comic Relief fundraising marathon.
Peter and Leanne wanted to hold a fundraising event to celebrate the first anniversary of taking over the Old Registry.
Leanne said proceeds would support both the Amy May Yam fund – set up by Amy to fund specialist research at Great Ormond Street Hospital – and Amy’s own physical and mental well-being.
She added: “The event includes a hearty home-made supper, something sweet to finish, singing by Annie Drury, a magician and a raffle.”
The event begins at 7pm. Call 01535 646503 for details.
