A pub crawl in memory of a man who was the ‘life and soul’ of the party will raise cash for the hospice which cared for him.

Shane Bailey died last year, aged 47, after battling against brain cancer.

He spent his final days at Katharine House Hospice so his sister Donna Lindle and mum Maureen want to raise money to say thank you to the staff.

They have invited dozens of Shane’s friends and family to the Admiral Holland pub on September 5 to support others at the hospice and the Brain Cancer Trust as well.

Donna said: “It’s something Shane would liked to have done.

“He was always a man who was considered to be the life and soul of the party.

“He was quite well known around town as being this fun guy who had a huge personality and even though he led a simple life he certainly left an impression when he passed.”

If you would like to join the fundraiser, meet at the Admiral Holland, in Woodgreen Avenue, at 12 noon.
