Renowned cake and jam stall will help memorial fund
THE PARENTS of a Harborough man whose organs were used to save the lives of eight people after he died in 2009 are holding a charity coffee morning this weekend.
Stephanie and Robert Margery, of Harborough, were devastated when their 31-year-old son Chris died of a brain aneurysm three years ago. The family took comfort in the knowledge that he became a posthumous lifesaver and have kept Chris’ memory alive by setting up the Chris Margery Memorial Fund.
The latest fundraiser is at Great Bowden Village Hall on Saturday, from 10am-12.30pm.
There will be a tombola and raffle where the top prize is a framed and signed Leicester Tigers rugby shirt.
There will also be the renowned Margery cake and jam stall.
Proceeds will be going to the John Radcliffe Hospital neurology intensive care unit in Oxfordshire which cared for Chris after his aneurysm.
All are welcome to attend.
Chris, who went to the town’s Robert Smyth and Welland Park schools, helped saved the lives of eight people aged from 18-months-old up to 57.
