The event was held at the Woodlands Suite of the Ribby Leisure Village in memory Richard, who died aged 19.
Richard was promising all-round sportsman, who captained Kirkham Grammar School at rugby union and was also a regular for Fylde 2nd VX with high hopes of making the first team.
His family and friends set up the foundation to provide funds for those young people who need a little help to fulfil their sporting potential. Guests enjoyed a delicious dinner and a glamorous evening raising funds.
