The memorial service for Adrian Sudbury, the Huddesrfield Examiner journalist who died from leukaemia in August, is being streamed live via the paper’s website with the help of the BBC.
Sudbury, who used his site Baldy’s Blog to lead a campaign to improve bone marrow donation education in UK schools and colleges, was 27 when he died.
“The memorial service will be attended by people who supported Sign Up For Sudders, as well as Adrian’s friends, family and colleagues.
“Also expected to attend are readers of Adrian’s award-winning online diary, Baldy’s Blog, where he chronicled the ups and downs of living with leukaemia.
“The service will feature a pre-prepared message from Adrian himself, video tributes from the media and colleagues, speeches from his family, friends and Colne Valley MP Kali Mountford, who helped with Adrian’s campaign,” according to a post on the site.
