The Paul Readhead Asbestos Support Awareness Group (PRASAG) showed what a strength it has become in the Northeast on Saturday 2nd June, when it held it's Grand Prix Dinner and raised over £37,000 for PRASAG, Mesothelioma UK and the Mick Knighton Mesothelioma Research Fund, organising a memorable night for those attending.
The PRASAG group put on no ordinary dinner owing to their links with Rob Smedley, the Formula 1 Williams Head of Performance Engineering. On getting to the hotel in Durham I was wowed by the line-up of Ferraris and Lamborghinis. The usual heads and tales game had a Formula 1 edge with us answering true or false to Formula 1 questions. Sadly, I missed out on the prize of a top luxury flight to Dubai and was out with the first round. Louise Goodman, the commentator of Formula 1 asked us for questions to put to Rob of the not too serious kind, and tales from around the various tracks were enlightening.
With the donations to the 3 charities, PRASAG have provided much needed funds for research and support of those with mesothelioma and asbestos related diseases. It's a suburb result for Sam Cox who runs the group and Leah Taylor, the Mesothelioma UK nurse who arranged the event.
