THREE Thame ladies have raised more than £5,000 for motor neurone disease in memory of one of their brothers who died.
Elaine Stokes, Jennie Hill and Tracey Walker, who all went to Lord Williams’s School together, organised a winter ball in Stokenchurch after the disease killed Tracey’s brother Trevor.
The ladies want to raise a total of £7,000 and the event at The King’s Arms will go some way to helping them reach that target.
Trevor Richardson died two years ago aged just 38. Motor neurone disease is a rare and devastating condition that progressively damages the nervous system, causing the muscles to waste away.
He was a popular man who lived in Long Crendon and Thame and worked at CPM as a school leaver and stayed there learning the print trade and continued in the profession until he was too weak to work.
