A PUB will host a tribute night at the end of this month in honour of a Whitby plasterer who died from cancer.
Paul Kelly (54) died last year after a long battle with cancer but many of his friends and workmates did not have the opportunity to say goodbye and pay their respects.
A celebration of his life - a night of music and socialising - has now been organised at The Shambles in Market Place on Wednesday 28 November at 7pm for everyone who knew him.
One of Paul’s friends Karen Charman said: “The celebration of Paul’s life has been organised so that everyone who knew him can recount their stories of a man with a great personality and generous spirit.
“Music will be provided by his good friend Gin, a professional musician and an all star band he has put together for the occasion. “Gin once tried to teach Paul the piano and who has also promised to do a number as Paul would have played it in his honour.
“So if you knew Paul, please come along and remember him and have a great night and a good drink in his memory.”
A buffet will be provided on the night and the event is free however, people are invited to make a donation in the collection box which will be provided to raise funds for a local community project which needs the services of a plaster.
Any community projects in need of a plasterer who would like to apply for the funds are asked to call Karen at Neil’s Removals on (01947) 825465.
