The Footballer, The Broadcaster and a Publicist

The photograph above is and will remain a rare sight on this Blog. The young man signing the football shirt is Lee Catermole an England and Premier League Player who generously donated his time for a fundraising event. Thanks to the Editor's son Tim a full detailed and instant 'biog' was made available for the benefit of the event press co-coordinator, the Editor, whose knowledge and indeed interest in Football being absolutely nil; which makes the event even more unique. The occasion of the photograph was a fundraising event in aid of a very special and needy Teesside Charity.

Broadcaster Stewart McFarlane MBE and Lee Cattermole (Middlesbrough FC and England Under 21 Player) were present at the special open evening to celebrate 10 years of being in business at Jigsaw Hair Spa, Beckfield Centre, Ingleby Barwick. A large number of people attended the evening where they were shown how the newly refurbished impressive Hair Spa works while eating strawberries and drinking wine courtesy of Sharon Trotter the owner of Jigsaw (http://www.jigsawhairspa.co.uk/ 01642 763661)

Stewart McFarlane politely refused to have his beard coloured, he and Lee added greatly to the evening, Lee signing Middlesbrough Team Shirts and Stewart announcing that on Sunday 24 June there would be a special Charity Day in aid of the Butterwick Hospice Care, see

A raffle was also held in aid of the Hospice. Jigsaw's proprietor has generously donated 6 Vouchers to the Hospice to allocate as they wish at the Hospice and the lucky recipients will have a complementary Hair Spa and Lunch at Jigsaw's impresive Hair Spa at Ingleby Barwick.

More on the Butterwick Hospice will follow since this Blog has become somewhat involved in the need to urgently raise £ 750,000.
