Lisa fund is

Char­ity match raises

Lennox Herald - - NEWS - Lor­raine Weir

The sis­ter of miss­ing Vale woman Lisa Brown has paid trib­ute to ev­ery­one who helped make a fundrais­ing match in her name a suc­cess.

De­spite the rain on Sun­day, the com­mu­nity gath­ered to hon­our the mum and raise money for a re­ward for in­for­ma­tion about her dis­ap­pear­ance af­ter she van­ished from her home in south­ern Spain al­most two years ago.

The char­ity foot­ball match held at Mill­burn Park coined in more than £2000 which will be added to the fund which rel­a­tives hope will lead to the key piece of in­for­ma­tion needed to trace her.

Speak­ing af­ter the match, Lisa’s sis­ter He­len Jor­dan thanked ev­ery­one who has helped them through the “night­mare” they have ex­pe­ri­enced since find­ing out Lisa was miss­ing.

She told the Lennox Her­ald: “It was great. The sup­port and peo­ple com­ing out to do things for us was amaz­ing, even the play­ers pay­ing for the priv­i­lege to play in that rain.

“A spe­cial thanks to Tommy Gra­ham and Sean Lav­ery as they did a lot of the or­gan­is­ing for ex­am­ple, ar­rang­ing the strips.

“When you hold some­thing like this, you re­alise how kind peo­ple are.

“To ev­ery­one who do­nated prizes and ev­ery­one who bought tick­ets we are truly grate­ful and are so lucky to have many great friends who have stood be­side us through­out this night­mare.”
