GREETLAND woman Lianne Brown is raising funds into a kidney disease which cost her baby nephew his life.

She has organised a Zumbathon at Halifax YMCA, 9.30 am to 11.30 am, on March 24.

Lianne is a founding member of the Arran Brown Rainbow Foundation and the inaugural Rainbow Festival will be held later that night at the Yorkshire Rider Club, Halifax.
