Following a very successful Spirit of Tring event on 15th/16th May the Tring Brewery Company (www.tringbrewery.co.uk ) generously chose to donate a proportion of the proceeds from the bar to The Foundation through the Tring Town Mayors Charity Fund. Our picture shows Foundation Director, Keith Delderfield in attendance as Cllr Roxanne Ransley, Mayor of Tring, receives a cheque for £891.08 from Richard Shardlow, Director of Tring Brewery Company on Monday 24th May 2010.
Keith Delderfield expressed his gratitude to both Mayor Ransley and Mr Shardlow for such generous support pointing out to Mr Shardlow that over the years he has himself been an equally keen supporter of his company!!
Cllr Ransley, Tring Town Mayor said “I am delighted that I am able to play a part in helping and supporting The Douglas Bader Foundation in its efforts to help so many people with disabilities strive to achieve their own personal goals. Douglas Bader was, of course , most famous for his exploits as a RAF fighter ace during WW2 but my support is very much in support of the inspirational work that he started amongst the disabled community of our country and for which he was knighted in 1976; I greatly admire and I am proud to be associated with such a committed charity as that which continues to deliver his message in such a positive and effective way”.
Foundation Director of Operations, Keith Delderfield said that he was delighted that the “home town” of the charity had acknowledged and given such high profile support to its work.Tags: Bader, disabled, Douglas Bader, Douglas Bader Foundation, Keith Delderfield, Mayor, RAF, Roxanne Ransley, Tring
