Feast For Paul Freeman
The Sugar & Spice Events team are producing a charity event, to raise funds for the Queensland Cancer Council, in honour of our friend who sadly passed away due to bowel cancer earlier this year.
Andrew (my hubby) and Paul were good mates. They had a friendship that spanned a lifetime and was filled with backyard BBQ’s, street cricket, summer days in the pool floating on aqua ducks and Triple J Hottest 100 parties.
We knew Paul was sick, but thought that he would beat the disease, like he had done once before. We were all completely unprepared for the news that he had been admitted into hospital, and would not be coming out.
Saying goodbye was the one of the hardest things our group of friends ever had to do, and the funeral that followed was a heartfelt and emotional day, remembering a man who was known by people across the world as a true gentleman. It was at the wake that we began discussing ways to honour Paul, and the idea of a charity fund raiser was born.
Fast forward a few months later, and The Feast for Paul Freeman is in full swing, with the event date set for next Saturday 8th November. More details are listed in the flier below.
