Sheffield boxer Kell Brook was among thousands of people who turned out to celebrate the life of a hero soldier at a special event.
Kell was guest of honour at the fun day on Beighton Welfare Recreational Ground on Saturday, which was held in memory of Cpl Liam Riley.
Liam, who was a friend of Prince Harry, was killed aged 21 by a roadside bomb in February 2010 while trying to save a comrade.
His aunt, Marie Gregg, said the annual fun day in aid of Help for Heroes was a great way of keeping Liam’s memory alive.
She said: “It was worth all the stress of the organising. It’s Liam’s birthday on July 7 so we put some of his favourite songs on at the end of the night and had a teary moment.
“Kell Brook is a top bloke. He was just lovely and had his photo taken with people and they were chucking money in the bucket. I think he drew a lot of people to the event and we want to thank him for coming.”
