EAST YORKS: A fundraiser in memory of hairdresser to the stars Matthew Davidson, inset, is being held next weekend.
His wife, Amy, is holding the charity ball in memory of Matthew, who died in July 2011 after battling Hodgkin's lymphoma.
He lost his fight just three months after hundreds of people lined the streets of Kirk Ella to watch them marry.
The fundraiser is being held on Saturday, March 9, from 7pm at Lazaat in Cottingham.

There will be a DJ, entertainment, a charity auction and raffle.
All the money raised will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust unit at Castle Hill Hospital.
Amy said: "The unit hardly receives any money from the NHS and needs as much support as we can give. Matthew's wish was to help the people younger than him, so that is what I decided to do."

EAST YORKS: More than a quarter of people using medication in Yorkshire worry they depend on drugs too much.
A survey by Nuffield Health, a national healthcare charity, also revealed 31 per cent of the region's residents require painkillers to be able to continue working.
For the Yorkshire and Humber region, 11 per cent admitted to taking more than the safe recommended dose of painkillers and almost a third said they have used them for more than five years.
Nuffield Health's consultant spinal surgeon Manoj Krishna said: "A lack of knowledge, or fear about treatment can lead some patients into long-term use of painkillers, often without a clear diagnosis by a specialist.
"This can be a very bleak existence with patients becoming depressed, losing their jobs, and often becoming dependent on the drugs."
EAST YORKS: A community film company is looking for a young performer to star in a movie.
The Bijou Filming Company is embarking on its sixth production, Bill And Bennie.

All the filming will be in the Hull and East Riding area, mostly at weekends. The audition and rehearsals will be in Leven, where the company is based.
If you are interested in taking part in the profit-share project, or know someone else who might be, get in touch with the film's director John D Slater on 01964 542809.
