The latest in a series of events led by local supporter Dhiru Shah alongside Leicester’s Fashion UK, award-winning licensee, has raised over £3,000 for Alex’s Wish.
Dhiru has organised several events alongside Fashion UK in support of Alex’s Wish over the past few years but it’s his New Year’s event that brings in the biggest crowd! Over 600 attended this year’s event which was held at the Maher Centre in Leicester. Speaking about the event Dhiru said, “The event was a huge success with great Asian food and Infiniti FJ also joined us and supported us too. It’s always good to see everyone celebrating New Year and now that we have received the last donations in, I can announce that we raised £3,000 for Alex’s Wish.”
Donations were received from Fashion UK – £1,000, Dhiru Shah – £500, Gala Drinks – £500, Jinder Catering of Birmingham – £600, Kamlesh Purohit – £100, Hasmukh Tanna – £100, Syan Bhatt – £51, Batuk Lukha – £25, Suresh B Shah – £30 and Sudhir Odedra – £94, thank you to everyone for all your support.
Emma Hallam, Founder at Alex’s Wish and mum to Alex said, “We always enjoy working with Dhiru who is a whirlwind of energy and who works incredibly hard to put on these events. Over the years, Dhiru along with Fashion UK has raised over £20K for Alex’s Wish, but equally importantly, Dhiru continues to raise awareness by appearing on local radio stations and shouting from the rooftops about the work we do. We are so very grateful for his ongoing support and his passion to help conquer Duchenne for Alex and every other child living with this condition. He’s a truly remarkable and charitable person dedicated to not just supporting Alex’s Wish but other local charitable causes too.”
