Nigel Shorts MASSIVE 37th Birthday Fundraiser
Fri 12 May 2017, 19:00 – 23:30 BST
10 years ago I celebrated my 'Big Birthday' at Swallownest Miners Welfare. We had a great night!!
Little did I know that night that I was carrying a tumor in my throat - the size of a plum. 6 months after that night I was diagnosed - and told that there was just a 30% chance of living 5 years IF I had the treatment.
10 years later - and thanks to the help of the brilliant staff at Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield - I'm still here, fit and healthy (well, healthy). I've done a number of fundraisers to thank the hospital for saving my life - and I can think of no more fitting tribute than to hopefully top up that fundraising to £20k - 10 years after they gave me life.
I hope you will attend my party - a reunion back at the Miners Welfare - and whether you can or can't - please don't buy me a card or present - but make a donation in lieu to the charity. (I'm suggesting a minimum £10 a head if youre attending the party please - but fully understand tif you can't commit to this)
Dress Code: Not mandatory - but please - as they used to say at all the best clubs in the 80s - DRESS TO IMPRESS. Jackets and ties (and big fringes - if youve still got hair) for the men - Party dresses and backcombed hair for the ladies. Thanks :-)
