Bucketload of help for injured mum
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.”
