FRIENDS of a young mother who died suddenly from a heart condition are raising money for charity and in her memory.
Lisa Freeman, of Hove Edge, Brighouse, was just 30 when she died in October from hypertrophic cardio- myopathy.
Now, friends and mothers of pupils at St Joseph's RC Primary School in Brighouse, where she was a nursery nurse, and nearby St Chad's C of E School, which her daughter Katie, six, and son Jordan, four go to, are holding a band night to raise money for the charity that fights the disease.
Lisa's sister, Adele Biggins, of Huddersfield Road, Brighouse, said: "Lisa was a beautiful and very caring person. She had an incredible sense of humour and was admired by a lot of people.
"Her friends are organising the event to celebrate how much Lisa was loved in a way that she would have enjoyed - and also raise money for a charity that is now important to us all."
The event - on Thursday, March 30, at Brighouse Sports Club, Bradford Road - includes local band NYC. The event starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £5.
Proceeds will go to the Cardiomyopathy Association, which offers information and support to families affected by the inherited condition.
Some of the money will also be used to build a memorial garden at St Joseph's School.
Lisa had been suffering from breathlessness and dizziness and had had hospital tests when she collapsed at home last September.
She was taken to hospital, where hypertrophic cardiomyopathy - a thickening of the heart muscle - was diagnosed.
She died in hospital five weeks later from pneumonia.
