A FUNDRAISING dinner was held on Saturday evening in aid of the Barry Wilde Trust Fund.
Mr Wilde died in January 2004 of a liver disease, primary sclerosing cholangitis.
He had waited in vain for a liver transplant for 10 months.
His widow Margaret and children Graeme, Joanne and Richard set up the Barry Wilde Trust Fund to raise awareness of the need for liver donors.
The evening at the Cedar Court Hotel included a three-course meal, entertainment and a disco.
The event also included guest speaker, former BBC rugby commentator Martin Lord, who also drew the raffle.
A spokesman for the trust said special thanks should go to Mr Wilde's former employers, Sellers Engineers and Borg Warner
Turbo Systems in Bradford, for generous donations.
The spokesman added that in just over a year the Trust had raised £5,000. All the money raised on Saturday will go to the Liver Unit at St James's Hospital, Leeds, and The Gift For Life Commemorative Trust.
