Halifax women organise memorial event at Piece Hall

Have your say

A day to remember lost loved ones is being organised by two Halifax women.

Sarah Metcalfe and Lisa Hrosulak have put together a feast of entertainment at the Piece Hall in Halifax on the evening of Saturday, August 18, followed by a candle-lit silence.

Both women have lost family members. Sarah’s father, Corporal Ian Metcalfe, was killed while serving in Northern Ireland and her sister, April Martin, died after being hit by a car when she was just seven years old.

They said they believed there should be a remembrance event for anyone who has died, in what ever circumstances.

Earlier this year the women launched 4directions - an organisation to raise funds for Macmillan, RSPCA, NSPCC and Help for Heroes.
