Mother-of-four Paula Young, of Calder Avenue, died from cancer at the tragically early age of 41 in January and is the inspiration behind a fund-raiser for Trinity Hospice.

The devoted care she received at the Bispham Hospice, on Low Moor Road, prompted Paula’s husband Colin to try and help them.

Colin, 47, has organised a fun day and 2.2 mile sports run at King George’s Playing Field followed by a Fun Day Fleetwood Cricket Club, both on Saturday.

Friends of the family, Maxine Emslie, Denise Wilkinson and Lisa Haugan, are helping to organise the event and intend a small amount of the funds to help Colin and Paula’s four children.

The fun run in May takes place at 2pm and the Fun Day event will be from 6.30pm until late.
