Friends of a Whaley Bridge man left with a brain injury after being assaulted in a pub have organised a charity fundraiser.

Ashley Humphrey was hit with a pool cue while in the Railway pub in Whaley Bridge in August 2013, and suffered a brain haemorrhage. He remains in hospital and is being supported by the brain injury charity Headway.

Now his friends, Jay Parker, Amy Large, Ross Ardern, Kimberley Ross, Roxy and Ben Verdon, Saul Good, Sam Olinski, Jade Beesley, Amanda Pollitt, Vicki Booth and Aaron Burgess have organised a charity band night at Whaley Bridge Bowling Club on Saturday November 1.

A number of bands will be playing and there will also be a charity raffle. Doors open at 6pm and no tickets are required. Donations will be welcome on the night, which is also when Whaley Bridge’s annual fireworks display will take place outside the bowling club.
