Party in mem­ory of Jak True­man

West Lothian Courier - - News - Staff reporter

The fam­ily of in­spi­ra­tional teenager Jak True­man are mark­ing what would have been his 18th birth­day with a spe­cial fundrais­ing party.

Jak passed away in 2015 after a brave bat­tle with rare cancer gamma delta T- cell lym­phoma and would have turned 18 on September 21.

His mum Al­li­son Barr and her fam­ily are remembering the big hearted teen by or­gan­is­ing a bowl­ing party at Deer Park this Sun­day from 3.30pm un­til 5.30pm.

The cost is £10 per per­son which in­cludes two games of bowl­ing, a fizzy drink, chips and much more.

Al­li­son said: “We are also hav­ing a huge party af­ter­wards in the func­tion suite to cel­e­brate Jak’s birth­day and are also pre­sent­ing awards to all our vol­un­teers which is to recog­nise the great work they are do­ing to help raise funds and aware­ness.

“We are also hav­ing a pub and restau­rant chal­lenge for this month, which is Child­hood Cancer Aware­ness month and are ask­ing lo­cal pubs to ‘Buy a Pint for Jak’ and get as many of their cus­tomers to do­nate £3 to Team Jak and fill as many pint glasses as they can with £1 coins to cel­e­brate Jak’s 18th.

“We are also en­cour­ag­ing folks to have their own chal­lenge for Team Jak.”
