THE SUN shone down as hundreds of Silhillians attended the annual Friends of Solihull Hospital (FOSH) summer fete to raise thousands of pounds for the hospital.

More than £7,000 was raised thanks to over 1,000 visitors who went to the event which was opened by Mayor of Solihull, Coun Glenis Slater and featured live entertainment, a summer raffle, children’s fun races and a large range of stalls.

Among the attractions on offer music from the Harmonie Concert Band, dance presentations from Planet Dance, a martial arts display from by a local Tang Soo Do group and a dog training demonstration from Hatchford Brook Dog Training.

Honorary Secretary, Liz Steventon thanked everyone who went along to support the event and those who volunteered to help on the day.

She added: “The whole day was a great success, a big thank you to everyone who came along and made the day possible.

“This is such an important event in our calendar, as we raise money to help the hospital continue to provide top class care to the local community.”
