A RECENT fund-raising dinner evening in Ledbury raised hundreds for a heart disease charity.

Chain of Hope fundraiser, Carol Wright has supported the charity ever since her daughter Susan, a nurse, died in a road accident in Mozambique, in 2007.

Her daughter had been working in a heart unit, and Chain of Hope is a charity with the mission to establish and maintain clinical and research heart centres for children and young people in developing countries.

The speaker at the dinner was Jan Long of Bromsberrow, who gave an insight into "The Trials and Tribulation of a Churchwarden".

Mrs Wright said she had been thrilled with the response to her invitations and her dinner evening had raised over £650 for the charity.
