LIVE music, a pig roast and a prize raffle will be on offer at an event in memory of a racing car driver who lost his battle with a brain tumour.
The Rockin’ Berries are set to take to the stage at the event at The Wheelbarrow Castle near Inkberrow which starts at 6pm on Saturday, April 20.
Prizes on offer during the event include a helicopter flight, a balloon flight and weekends away with all proceeds going towards research into Glioblastoma Multiforme, one of the most aggressive and deadly types of tumours.
Organiser Sarah Harman said the On Top Of The World fund had been set up in memory of her uncle David Fernihough following his 11-month battle with the disease.
“Dave was a loving, hardworking and generous husband, father and grandfather. He was a well loved, well known and respected man with a great deal of friends, associated and has been described by many as a legend in the Autograss world.”
He had been racing in the non-contact motorsport since the early 60s in his car The Bullet and had been named national champion twice.
“Dave was also notorious for his courage during his cancer battle and when asked how he was feeling, even when in obvious pain and discomfort, his reply was always a positive one with his favourite saying being ‘on top of the world’. So with this in mind, the specific brain tumour research fund has been named as such.”
Tickets costing £20 for the event are available from The Wheelbarrow Castle.
