A foundation set up in memory of a Lightcliffe woman who died from cervical cancer is holding a fundraising night tomorrow at the Old Pond, Spout Lane, Hove Edge, Brighouse.

The Faye Knowles Chapman Foundation is raising awareness about cervical cancer and is campaigning for the minimum age for screening to be lowered.

Faye was just 27 when she died earlier this year. She was 24 when diagnosed and women have to be aged 25 for NHS screening.

She worked on cruise ships as a dancer and choreographer and kept herself superfit.

The event has been organised by Faye’s mum Eileen and new landlady Helen Crawshaw and includes a live band, raffle prizes and charity auction.

Helen said she intends carrying on with fundraising events and is looking forward to the pub’s refurbishment later in the summer.

“The pub will be restored back to its former glory with a more contemporary look,” she said.
