Digital journalist and blogger Adrian Sudbury, who died last month from leukaemia, is to be remembered and celebrated at an open memorial service on October 16.
A private funeral for Adrian, who created Baldy’s Blog to chronicle his fight against cancer and his campaign for better education on bone marrow donation, has already been held, his mum, Kay Sudbury, said on his blog last week.
“Adrian wants this to be a much more upbeat affair and would like as many people as possible to attend wearing bright clothing suitable for the cathedral setting,” wrote Kay.
The service will take place at Sheffield Cathedral from 2pm. All enquiries should be made to 01484 437707 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
A host of fundraising activities have also been organised by Adrian’s friends and family, and donations in honour of his memory have already risen to £1,400, which has been given to the Anthony Nolan Trust.
“His Dad and I would merely say that the best way to remember Adrian is to get onto the donor register. We know many of you have already done so and we salute your determination to make a difference,” his mum added in the post.
