Barnsley community helps raise money for final wish

Monday August 24 2015

THE BARNSLEY community is helping raise money to give an inspirational father with terminal cancer his final wish.

Andy Feast, of Thurnscoe, has fought a long and courageous battle against Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia since March 2014.

Sadly Andy's cancer has been diagnosed as terminal.

Family friend, Donna Hart, said: "Even after receiving his sad news he is still fighting strong, laughing, joking and being the Andrew we all know and love.

"He is a truly inspirational family man, who has always provided for his wife and three children."

Donna decided to set up a fundraising page after Andy said that he would like to spend a week in Bridlington with his family.

Hiya I have sent this to our local paper 'Bridlington free press'. They have said they will do what they can to help, so hopefully they will be in touch.
