Several hundred people are expected to gather in Darley this weekend - 12 months to the day after a popular farmer took his own life.

Graham Houseman, a shooting fan known to many as 'G-man', died aged just 39.

Over 1,300 people attended his funeral.

The Wellington Inn clay shooting team, of which he was a member, will hold a shoot on Saturday to raise money for the mental health charity Mind.

Close friend and team captain Andy Gott said: "He was one of the most fun, most compassionate, most generous people I've ever met.

"He was the life and soul of the party, he was just an amazing man...for him to take his own life I think is the biggest shock this Dale has ever had."

Graham's life is already marked outside the pub, with his favourite bench inscribed with the words 'Graham Houseman - Travelled this Dale with a big wide smile and touched many hearts'

Organisers hope a few thousand pounds can be raised on the day for Mind, a charity chosen by Graham's family.

Andy added: "People give a lot to cancer charities and other charities that we hear a lot about, but mental health doesn't get a lot of help from the NHS, it doesn't get a lot of help from anywhere."

There will also be a celebration of Graham's life at The Wellington Inn.

The fundraising event will get under way at 10am and you can find out more on its Facebook page.
