In 2017 Andrew Bowell and his partner Michelle Lawley hosted events to help raise money in memory of Andrew’s dad, Trevor Bowell, who died from heart disease in August 2016.

The couple have raised £6,000 and are now hoping to reach their £10,000 target this year.

On April 7 they will be hosting an Easter egg hunt and craft fair, in aid of the cardiology research department at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.
