Blues night for Dale’s sailing adventure

AN ADVENTUROUS fund-raiser is hosting a charity blues boncert in memory of his friend.

Dale Deacon will set off on August 27 on the trip of a lifetime as he circumnavigates the UK in a 46-ft cruising yacht.

He is raising money for Overgate Hospice in memory of his friend Mark Brumpton, a patient at Overgate Hospice during his battle with cancer.

The pair met while taking part in scuba diving trips around the UK.

Mark, who lived in Blackley but worked across Halifax, died aged 48 in 2008. He had battled cancer for four years and spent three months at the hospice.

Dale now wants to raise £10,000 and the blues night at Best Western, Common Road, Bradford on August 12, is his last push.

Tickets cost £5 each, for more details visit
