The event in South Molton will raise money for a new charity set up in memory of Paul Bovey.

THE mother of a young man who died in a car accident last year is holding a Tarts and Pimps disco for a charity set up in his memory.

Jackie Brealy, from Denbury, set up the charitable organisation PAULY Stay Safe in memory of her son Paul Bovey, who lived in South Molton.

Paul died on October 12 last year along with his friend Martyn Windsor, 25, when their car plunged into the flooded River Mole.

The disco on April 20 at North Molton sports club will raise money for PAULY Stay Safe to help young people pay for a Pass Plus driving test.

Mrs Brealy said: “All I have left of Paul is the replica of his tattoo on my back and a heart full of memories.
