SIR - I am writing regarding a fundraiser for Jamie Parrish, held at the Oak Tavern in February.

Jamie, 34, from Panshanger, unfortunately had a stroke just before Christmas.

He spent nearly two months at the Royal Free in London. He has now been moved back to the QE2 where he is making progress; however, he still has a long way to go before he makes a full recovery.

We held a disco, raffle and auction at the Oak Tavern to raise money to help towards Jamie's recovery. We were amazed at how many people turned up to show their support. It is fantastic to see the local community pulling together.
