Chilworth woman's plea for help to support fire-hit children's charity

Published at 3:57pm 3rd October 2017.

A Chilworth woman has issued a plea for help as she tries to support a Guildford charity devastated by a fire.

Challengers' play centre was destroyed after a blaze back in September.

It started from a tumble dryer, which was not in use, and took 32 firefighters to put out.

Children were inside the building at the time, but thankfully no one was hurt due to a swift evacuation.

Local communities have since rallied in support for Challengers, including Lynne Bramble who has a daughter who works for the charity and a nephew who uses it.

She is one of the many people upset by what happened and decided to do something to help.

"We desperately want to help them rebuild their Guildford play centre." she told Eagle.

"Those parents need support and help."


Lynne is organising a fundraising party this month and will donate all money raised to Challengers.

It is taking place at Wonersh Village Club on 28 October for Halloween.

However she is appealing to the public for help after struggling to find a band to perform at the event.

Lynne is asking anyone who may be able to help to get in touch as soon as possible.

She said: "We've been trying lots of bands and we haven't been able to get anywhere because it's quite short notice.

"Please come and help this worthwhile cause! You never know you might need them one day yourself."

If you can help, you're asked to contact Lynne by emailing fudleyhouse@btinternet.com
