7:00am Monday 18th March 2013 in News
THOUSANDS of bottle tops have been collected at a Kidderminster school for a charity set to be the lasting legacy of Charlie Harris-Beard, who lost his leukaemia battle.
Youngsters from Heronswood Primary School and Spennells Childcare have been busy collecting the plastic bottle tops for Cords4Life, set up by Charlie’s parents, Joe Beard and Fiona Harris, to raise awareness of umbilical cord donations.
Drop-off points have also been set up for people to donate their bottle tops.
They include the Red Lion pub, in Castle Road, Cookley and in Kidderminster at Grand Prix Motors, in Mill Street, Foley Park post office, in Stourport Road, the Swan Shopping Centre and Fantastico, in Dixon Street.
The 1st Kidderminster Boys’ Brigade and the Young Gloves karate club, are also collecting bottle tops.
