GRAEME SWANN DONATES BOWLING HAND TO CHARITY
GRAEME SWANN, NOTTINGHAM AND ENGLAND BOWLER, HAS HAD A 3D CAST TAKEN OF HIS BOWLING HAND FOR CHARITY.
Karen Horner, from Precious Memories, has created a 3D cast of Graeme Swann’s bowling hand, holding a cricket ball, which will be auctioned off for charity later this month.
Graeme agreed to the casting, which took place at his home, and also donated a rare signed photograph of the England Test Squad V India 2011, as well as his signed shirt. The cast will be authenticated by a signed certificate and a photo of the cast being made.
The auction will take place at the Nottingham Neonatal Charity Ball on September 24 and all proceeds will go to the Nottingham University Hospital Neonatal Units.
Karen owns the Precious Memories 3D franchise in Nottingham and surrounding areas and suggested the unusual fundraising activity when she met Jenny Bond from the Nottingham Neonatal Charity at an event in June. Jenny loved the idea and soon came back to Karen to say Graeme Swann had agreed to the casting and a date was made.
The 4th Annual Nottingham Neonatal Ball takes place on September 24th 2011 and tickets are still available at £37 each, to include a three course meal, coffee, live music, entertainment and disco. The auction will take place live at the Ball, and it is hoped it will generate thousands of pounds for the charity. Other lots up for auction include signed Carl Foch photos, a Porsche driving experience, a film making session, and a theatre break.
