The friends and family of Paul Booth were devastated when he died suddenly at the age of 64.

Paul, lived in Langley, Middleton and was a devoted brother, father and grandfather. He loved his golf and was a big character at his local club in North Manchester.

In tribute to Paul a golf day was held in his memory.

Daughter Jenny said: “Dad loved his golf and would play a couple of times a week. When he died, we thought what better way to celebrate his life than with a golf event. He also loved children, and we wanted to donate the money raised on the day to Francis House, a charity that was also supported by his late mother.”

A Manchester City fan all his life, Paul was the brother of footballing legend Tommy Booth.

The family later invited Francis House fundraiser, Julie Williams, to the club to receive a donation of £1,565.

Julie said: “It was lovely to meet the family and to hear about Paul. It was also a great opportunity to tell everyone more about Francis House and the services that we offer to the families of children and young people with life-limiting conditions. Their kind donation will help towards providing much needed care.”

The Paul Booth Memorial Golf Day will be an ongoing annual event in aid of Francis House.
