Luck runs out for Stephen after mother's National victory

LEEDS Jewish Welfare Board has benefited from the recent Grand National to the tune of 235.

When Stephen Berson was opener for the Welfare Board's Gale Bridge Trophy in November, he offered the winners a free bet on the Grand National, with any winnings going to the Welfare Board.

It turned out to be a family affair as Stephen's mum Barbara Berson was the winner.

Barbara appears to be on a roll because she also backed the winner, Tiger Roll, ridden by jockey Davy Russell.

However, it is not all good news in the Berson family - last weekend, while fell walking, Stephen tripped and broke his leg and has been laid up in Lancaster Hospital for several days.
