A BUSINESS woman is set to raise funds for the hospital which saved her grandson’s life.
Julie Bridgwater, who runs VIP Eye Wear in Tardebigge Court, is celebrating the first anniversary of the company with a fashion show, with all proceeds going to the Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
She said: “Three years ago my beautiful daughter Nikki had a baby boy, Charlie. He was only a few hours old when it was discovered something was seriously wrong with him.
“He was taken by ambulance to Birmingham Children’s Hospital immediately. Here they discovered his oesophagus was attached to his lung and not to his stomach as it should be. He was operated on - a six-hour operation that saved his life.”
The evening at 7.30pm on Friday, September 20, at Tardebigge Community Hall will include high street clothes from outlets such as Wallis and M&S at greatly reduced prices, with a champagne reception and goody bags and canapés.
Businesses from the area have also donated raffle prizes for the evening.
For tickets costing £5, more information or to donate a prize, call Julie on 07752 739877.
