Colleagues of Hipperholme man Andrew Feather who died following an attack at a Halifax nightclub attack have taken part in a fundraising challenge in his memory.

Nearly 50 people from Halifax rugby union club and a Dewsbury pharmaceutical company climbed three Yorkshire peaks in a single day to raise money for Overgate Hospice.

A spokesman at Telstar Life Sciences, where 38-year-old Mr Feather was financial controller, said: “This is a sad time for all of us. Andrew was very well thought of.

“Everyone was keen to take part to show their respects. People from the firm went to his funeral in Halifax, which nearly 800 people attended.

“Andrew’s mum Jennifer worked as a director of the hospice and he did a lot of fundraising for the charity. “He was an extremely popular colleague. He was helpful, polite and good fun to be around. He always asked how you were and had a genuine interest in his colleagues’ wellbeing.

Mr Feather was killed by a single punch by Dale McLean, of Huddersfield, who was jailed for five years and four months for unlawful killing.
