A MEMORIAL bench has been placed at the Deighton Centre as a tribute to a Kirklees Council employee.
Community Support Services buildings officer Mick Farnan, of Birkby, died from cancer last year, aged 52.
Mr Farnan was a former president of the Catenians Catholic fellowship in Huddersfield, which raises money for charity, and a member of Huddersfield Rotary Club.
His widow, Clare, said: "Mick did a lot of charity work and was really well thought of for the way he helped other people."
He was a volunteer for Kirklees Youth Service for many years and will be remembered at the former Oakes Youth Club, which later moved to Salendine Nook High School.
Colleagues organised for the black bench - made from recycled plastic - to be put at the front of the Deighton Centre, where the Community Support Services department is based. It has now been officially dedicated to Mr Farnan's memory.
People sitting on the bench can look out over the hills towards Emley Moor, Kirkheaton, Bradley and Mirfield.
Community Support Services buildings operations manager Mrs Lynne Clark said: "Mick was very popular and we wanted to do something to celebrate his life."
The dedication was attended by Mr Farnan's family, colleagues and friends.
Community Support Services staff had signed a large Christmas card instead of sending individual ones last year.
The £70 they would have spent on cards has been given to the oncology unit at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, where Mr Farnan was treated.
