WHEN Andy Lawrence died so tragically on Saturday, September 5, last year (in an accident, when a bus mounted the footpath in Mid-Levels), he left a lot of memories for all the people who knew him.

He also left his young son, Jesse, who was in Devon staying with Andy's folks when the accident happened. We lost a friend. Jesse lost his dad and the prospect of a secure future.

Some of Andy's friends want to try to help Jesse by raising money which will go directly towards his education and upkeep until he is in a position to take care of himself. The main fund-raising event will be a concert held at South Island School (50 NamFung Road) this Saturday, from 2.30 to 7.30 pm.

There will be lots of music, activities for the kids, food and refreshments available.

Tickets (available at the door) cost $100 each. Children will be admitted free. If you cannot manage to come along and join the fun, you can still help Jesse by making a contribution.

An account has been opened with the Hongkong Bank. The account number is - 062-5-055991.

Please give as generously as you can. He's a great kid.
