Pillar of community's bereaved family donate over £5,000 to Rugby's hospital in his memory

Chhaganbhai Mistry passed away last September at the age of 95.

THE BEREAVED family of a pillar of the Rugby community have donated £5,800 to Rugby’s hospital in his memory.

Chhaganbhai Mistry passed away last September at the age of 95.

Since then, his family have raised thousands for the Hospital of St Cross through donations from relatives and friends.

Chhaganbhai lived in Rugby for 65 years and was always eager to support local causes and the community.

He spent most of his working life at Thomas Hunter in Mill Road and Alstom Power in Newbold Road.

The money raised in his name will be distributed equally between the hospital’s Diabetic Clinic, The Renal Services and Patient Funds, and the Palliative Care, Cardiology and Respiratory Medicine departments.

His family said: “We are very proud to have raised money for St Cross Hospital, who supported him during his later years. We thought it would be fitting to his legacy to donate to St Cross.

“We would like to thank the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) Charity in helping collecting the funds and all the generous donations made by family and friends.
