to commemorate what would have been her brother’s 40th birthday.

Paul Clark died 19 years ago at the age of 21, just 12 days before Alison’s dad.

The evening included a glass of fizz on arrival, food, a raffle, games, quizzes and a DJ.

Alison, 42, a volunteer for the Halifax branch of the charity, said: “The evening totally exceeded my expectations.

“I was overwhelmed by the support I was given by all my lovely friends and family, along with the fabulous help from Stephanie at the Silk Mill.”

More than 40 donations for raffle prizes were made by individuals and local businesses and on top of the £2,500 raised, Alison’s employer, Drive Medical, donated another £200.

If any other companies or individuals would like to donate to the event, cheques can be sent to Macmillan Cancer Support.
