TERENCE YATES BCAc
Terry, 72, has been serving his community for three decades. As a former entertainer he recognised the importance of a family night out to combat the breaking down of family values due to the uptake of computer games and latterly, social media. So, for the past thirty year’s he has turned these popular family nights into charity fundraisers.
Following the loss of his wife of 40 years, Terry raised £6,000 shared between Macmillan Cancer Support and the Sobell House Hospice in recognition of the care that they gave his wife.
In 2017 Terry suffered a heart attack while taking part in a fundraising fishing competition. That didn’t deter him, and now fighting fit again he is back organising his biggest ever Family Night. The beneficiary from this event will be the Air Ambulance.
In September 2018 Terry is also organising another event, the beneficiary being the British Heart Foundation. All events Terry organises are fully funded by him so that all the money raised goes to charity.
