A fundraising event to help the family of Danny Walsh, who was killed in Grantham in July, will go ahead after it had to be moved from the King’s Hotel.
Organiser Brad O’Hara, a friend of Danny’s, will hold the event on Saturday, September 28, when the boxing match between David Haye and Tyson Fury will be screened and there will be an auction of prizes including merchandise from Haye and Ricky Hatton, tickets to Leicester Tigers and pamper days. Brad said: “I have been overwhelmed by the response from four or five venues. I am very grateful to them. The night is not just for people who knew Danny, but for everyone to help raise money for his kids.”
Danny said he would announce the new venue very soon. Anybody who would like to buy tickets (£10) or donate raffle/auction prizes should call Danny on 07739 310935.
