The 2010 May Charity Foundation Ball

The Charlotte Hartey Foundation held it's premier Charity Ball on Friday 21st May 2010 at the Lion Quays in Oswestry and is proud to announce that a generous £14,000 was raised during the course of the evening.

The Foundation Ball took over six months of careful planning by the committee members Samantha Roberts, Zerina Mason, Bethan Hartey-Morrow and the Hartey family - Karl, Helen and Tristan and was enjoyed by over 220 guests, family members, friends, school friends and local businessmen. A big thank you goes out to key sponsors, Lion Quays, Kronospan, Canada Life, Stans Superstore and Applewood Wealth Management for helping make the evening one to remember.

Karl opened the evening with emotional words about his much loved daughter Charlotte and how very much she is missed, as a family member and a friend. Karl's speech emphasised on making dreams come true and offered advice to the guests, particularly Charlotte's young friends to "follow your dreams and make them happen" and hoped one day they would look back on the friendship they had with Charlotte and be able to say that she helped them in achieving their dreams. Karl also expressed the foundation is keen to support young entrepreneurs in the area and will soon be offering the fortunate applicants support and business development grants.

David Cameron MP backs swine flu petition

Conservative party leader David Cameron has backed a Shropshire father who is campaigning for a halt to over-the-phone swine flu diagnosis In an e-mail to Mr Hartey, Mr Cameron said: "When it comes to swine flu, I do think that more could have been done to stop confusion spreading among GPs and the public about what was happening – particularly about when antiviral drugs should be prescribed, when GPs should see people in the surgery or at home, and in what circumstances they could rely on diagnosing someone over the phone".

Foundation Football Monday 4th October 2010

6 Oswestry School 1st XI – 0 CHF old boys

We would like to thank every one kindly for their support on Monday evening - excellent turn out! A grand total of £133 was collected. A special thank you to both, Elis for his homemade rice crispy cakes (Yum yum!) and John for kindly donating cookies and cakes from at Milanos which kept the side line content while watching the game.

Sadly CHF lost to game 6-0. This was no reflection as to the performance of the team, as the game was end to end stuff with many narrowly missed chances from the foundations strikers! In the first half alone there were three blinding efforts and a missed penalty, All we can say is that we have improved on last years result and are definitely looking for the win next year!
