DEVOTED friends and family of tragic teen Lisa Saville have raised £650 in her memory.

Her mum, Debbie, was joined by Lisa’s closest friends and siblings as they made their way round Manor Heath for the first ever Halifax Race for Life, raising money for Cancer Research UK.

Her twin sisters, ten year-olds Sophie and Chloe, crossed the line in 45 minutes.

The girls all wore a picture of Lisa on the back of their T-shirts and had the names Lisa called them written below.

Debbie’s shirt read “Baby Boo” – her own nickname for her daughter.

Only four of the team had entered before the day, but other friends joined in on the day.

Debbie said: “Lisa really wanted to take part in this race so I did it on her behalf.

“It was really emotional but we all felt so proud to do it for our little angel,” said the devastated mum.

Lisa, 19, was killed in March after a night out with friends.

More than 2,000 women donned pink accessories to take part in the event on Sunday.
