A BEREAVED family will be hosting a fundraising event for Carlisle's public to get involved in, following the passing of their daughter.

Della Byers along with her partner Charlie Knight, who runs the Crescent bar, will be a hosting a collaboration which will see Carlisle’s most popular bars combine together to raise funds for an issue close to the couple’s heart.

All funds raised will go to the neo-natal unit at Middlesborough Hospital as well as NeoAngels after their prematurely born daughter Isabella Ann Knight passed away three weeks after being born.

“There was nothing they could do and unfortunately that happened, the worst time of our lives.

“But we feel we need to give back to them because they are all absolutely amazing, the staff and everyone over there is incredible.

“We want to make other people more aware because it’s quite common occurrence for new parents, we never realised how common it was until it happened to us,” Della said.

The event, that’s scheduled for September 9, will allow for patrons with a £10 ticket to get a wristband and jump between the bars involved of which include, Lux Bar, Lux Delisa, The Andalusian and The Arcade – with more names to be added.

All bars will have live musicians revolving between the premises, making up for what will be a great night in the name of charity.

“Most of the people who run the bars involved are either family or friends so it should be a great night – with all the money going to charity, we’ll also have donation boxes in the bars as well,” she said.

Staff from Crescent bar will also be taking part in a skydive to raise additional funds in Isabella’s name.

“The staff are paying out of their own pocket to go on a skydive to raise funds, which is incredible.

“The mid-wife who was in Middlesbrough with me, she’s put herself forward to do it as well,” she said.

More information on wristbands for the event will be coming soon with a list of other bars and musicians who will also be getting involved in what will be a spectacular night in Carlisle
