A Lochaber man is organising a ceilidh, karaoke and conga in Fort William High Street in memory of his mum, who died from cancer.
Adam Ramsey leads a 15-strong committee, which is holding the event in Cameron Square on Friday October 17 between 5pm and 9pm.
All the money raised at the party, which is free to attend, will go to Cancer Research UK to fund ground-breaking research and help save lives.
Mr Ramsey, of Fort William, said he was devastated after his mum, Catherine Gordon, died at the age of 59 in October 2008 after a battle with breast cancer.
But losing her made him determined to raise money to help give other families more time together.
The 38-year-old said: “I miss Mum so much. She was a passionate supporter of Cancer Research UK and took part in the charity’s Race for Life events every year. No matter what, she’d get round that course.
“We were devastated when we discovered her cancer had spread.
“Mum will never be forgotten, but now I’m determined to do everything I can to help fund research so there will come a day when future generations have nothing to fear from cancer.”
And, since it was set up in 2010, his Lochaber committee has raised more than £66,000 for the charity.
Mr Ramsey added that there would be a great atmosphere at the Fort William event, which forms part of its Stand Up to Cancer campaign.
The entertainment will included ceilidh bands and Arson About, a team of performers from Ballachulish who spin fire. There are also plans for some of the shops to open later.
The charity is also hoping to encourage as many people as possible to join the first March on Cancer, which is being held in Edinburgh on Saturday October 11 starting at Holyrood Park, below Arthur’s Seat, at 7.30pm.
The 45-minute sponsored walk will take in landmarks including the Scottish Parliament and St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile.
