Carrying on Karen’s work
A day of fun takes place on Sunday to help carry on the work of inspirational Stevenage doctor Karen Woo.
A charitable foundation set up by the Woo family in memory of the 36-year-old who was killed in Afghanistan in August, is holding a day of fundraising events, which includes many of the things Karen loved.
The family hope to continue the former Barclay School pupil’s work by funding essential healthcare for the poor and desperate in Afghanistan as well as elsewhere.
Karen’s brother Andrew said: “We are drawing inspiration from Karen’s work and are looking to support Afghanistan and try to drive through Karen’s aims.”
He added that the family would also like to support charities closer to home in the long term. The events, which include yoga, pilates and dance workshops as well as a festive afternoon tea, raffle, face painting and visit by Father Christmas with presents for the children, takes place at The Ramada Cromwell in Stevenage High Street.
To book a place at one of the sessions at �10 per person, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07974 201815, or just turn up on the day.
