Brooke edges closer to her dream

BROOKE’S Dream was further boosted this week when the campaign received a £1,100 cheque from the Station Masters Golf Club.

Seven-year-old Brooke suffers from cerebral palsy, which restricts her mobility and currently Brooke and her family are raising the money needed so she can undergo surgery to give her the chance of walking normally.

On Monday, the cash was presented by the Station Masters Golf Club honorary president, Evelyn Christieson, following a ‘good causes gig nite’ held last weekend at the Station Hotel, which raised an amazing £900.

Music on the night was provided by veteran rock band ‘Sounds 4’, who captivated the capacity crowd with their mix of blues and lively rock.

The total realised was supplemented a few days later at the Station Masters annual dinner and presentation of prizes where a further £200 was raised with the auction of two signed footballs.

Club captain Jim Simpson said: “We would like to offer sincere thanks to all those who contributed fantastic gifts for our raffles, to everyone who came along to our dance on the night, and of course to Ivor and Kathryn at the Station Hotel for their continued support.

“We hope that this donation will help Brooke eventually fulfil her dream.”
