Buck­et­load of help for in­jured mum

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A BUCKET col­lec­tion to raise funds for an in­jured Cheshire fire­fighter was held at Mac­cles­field’s match against Ch­ester.

Vicki Grif­fiths, a mother of two and the sis­ter of for­mer Ch­ester striker Tom Peers, has been left un­able to move from the waist down af­ter an ac­ci­dent at a gym.

Vicki, who is based in Birch­wood, is try­ing to find the means to fi­nance an ex­ten­sive pro­gramme of home and car adap­ta­tions which are es­sen­tial to ac­com­mo­date her needs and en­able her to look af­ter her two chil­dren.

Friends, fam­ily and her col­leagues at Cheshire Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice have al­ready launched a se­ries of fundrais­ing ini­tia­tives to try and gen­er­ate the thou­sands of pounds needed to make her home ac­ces­si­ble.

Vicki’s col­leagues at Ch­ester Fire Sta­tion were in at­ten­dance be­fore the match on Mon­day Au­gust 28 at the Swan­sway Ch­ester Sta­dium.

Lynsey McVay, ser­vice de­liv­ery man­ager at Cheshire Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice, said: “Vicki can’t feel any­thing from the waist down as a re­sult, and the Ser­vice has been fundrais­ing for her to raise the money to help her adapt her home and car. We want to thank Ch­ester FC and Mac­cles­field Town for their sup­port.”
