A swimming group from Crewe Swimming Pool are holding a Curry and Pie Afternoon. The event is to raise money to purchase a new electronic wheelchair for Vicky Perez. Each week Vicky participates in a swimming session at the pool as part of her exercise regime.
Her current wheelchair is showing its age and she recently had an incident in Crewe where a wheel fell off. The wheelchair provides her with the independence to allow her to visit the pool, shop and visit friends and family. Vicky, aged 33, is well known in the Crewe area for her achievements in sport as she is a former artistic gymnastics world champion and British Sports Acrobatics Wheelchair Champion.
The Curry and Pie Afternoon will take place on Sunday 4th November (12-3pm) at The Captain Webb pub, Underwood Lane, Crewe CW1 3SF. Tickets = £5 per person. Mags & Dave Oaks, who run The Captain Webb, have kindly agreed for their premises to be used for the event. The food will be prepared by Karen & Andrew Charlton and Joan & Sid Tilley.
