Lisa fund is
Charity match raises
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.”
