SHROPSHIRE Towns and Rural Housing (STAR) and residents of Yorkfields are preparing to cook up a barbecued treat for the people of Oswestry to help raise funds for Cancer Research.
The barbecue will be held at Yorkfields Sheltered Housing Scheme, Liverpool Road West, Oswestry today (Friday) from 12noon.
Everyone is invited to join in with the day’s festivities,which will also include a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses.
Sue Adams, Managing Director for Shropshire Towns and Rural Housing, hopes the event will bring the community together. Ms Adams said: “What a great way to get together with friends and neighbours, enjoy some lunch and raise funds and awareness for such a great cause.”
Vince Hunt, Shropshire Council local member for Oswestry West, will be attending the event and said: “I will be going along to the BBQ, both as the local member and as a board member of STAR Housing, and I’m looking forward to joining the residents and others to support this cause. Well done to them, and I would encourage anybody else to come and support this.”
