A GRIEVING dad has organised a fundraising day to help pay for a memorial to his son who was brutally murdered last year.

Craig Butterworth, 42, hopes to build a lasting legacy to his late son Kieran, who was stabbed to death on a Leeds street at the age of 17. His killer, Ghanu Stout, 27, is currently serving a life sentence for the attack in February last year in Harehills.

Now Kieran’s family have organised a day of events, including a bus pull, to try and raise the £1,000-1,500 needed to install a memorial bench in Havercroft, near Wakefield, where Mr Butterworth lives.
