Paddle event in memory of Amy

A STRICKEN family will stage a special charity fundraiser in memory of Bolton woman Amy Clark, who died last month in tragic circumstances.

Amy, 21, of Campion Close, Bolton, died after plunging from the roof of the Alhambra Centre, Barnsley on April 21.

The nursery worker had previously organised fundraisers for Make a Wish Foundation, and on June 23, a 24-hour sponsored paddle will take place at the Waterfront Boat Club, Manvers.

Anyone wanting to support the event should contact the Boat Club. Donations made at Amy’s funeral also went to the Make a Wish Foundation. Former Wath Comprehensive School pupil and Dearne Valley College student Amy worked at the Little Learners’ Nursery run by Doncaster Deaf Trust.
