A fundraising evening to support the family of Danny Walsh who was killed in July will go ahead this Saturday (September 28).

The event will be held at Faces nightclub in Westgate. Organiser Brad O’Hara was hoping that the David Haye v Tyson Fury boxing match would be shown live on the night but it has been postponed because Haye suffered a cut in sparring. But Brad hopes a boxing card will still be televised on the night.

The evening will also feature DJs and beatboxing, a raffle and auction and more entertainment to be confirmed. There are about 35 auction prizes including merchandise from David Haye and Ricky Hatton, tickets to see Leicester Tigers and pamper days.

Tickets cost £10 and will be available on the door from 7pm. There will Champagne on entry and waitress service.

Brad would still like donations of prizes for the raffle and auction - anything from a bottle of wine to a free haircut. If you can help Brad with donations or would like more details about the event and tickets call him on 07739 310935.

Danny died at the end of July. Two men have been charged with his murder.
