Pub night for Piotr

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A Ruther­glen pub will hold a fundrais­ing night this Satur­day in aid of the Ruther­glen man in­jured in the Manch­ester ter­ror at­tack.

Piotr Chylewska, 44, was left with se­vere in­juries to his left eye and right leg af­ter be­ing hit by shrap­nel from the blast on May 22.

He had been wait­ing for his wife and daugh­ter .

He en­dured sev­eral op­er­a­tions and was fi­nally al­lowed home two weeks ago.

The event will be held on July 8 in The Fair­ways pub, yards from where Piotr lives with his wife Ewa and two chil­dren Kasper, 15, and Amelia, 12.

It will in­clude a dance, auc­tion and raf­fle, while tra­di­tional Pol­ish beers and food are a nod to the fam­ily’s Pol­ish roots.

Man­ager Col­lette McAl­lis­ter said: “Piotr al­ways worked day and night to pro­vide for his fam­ily.

“It’s sad what has hap­pened. I just want this to be a big suc­cess for them.”

All prof­its raised in the bar will be do­nated to the Chylewska fam­ily, as will money raised via the raf­fle and auc­tion.

Busi­nesses that want to do­nate to the raf­fle or auc­tion can con­tact The Fair­ways on 07719 886071.
