Fundraiser to be held tonight in memory of Skipton man who took his own life

A fundraiser is being held tonight to celebrate the life of a Skipton man who took his own life. 

Samuel Carroll took his own life in May 2016. 

Samuel's Rainbow was set up by his family after a giant rainbow appeared a few days after Samuel's death. 

The campaign's Facebook page, which has hundreds of followers, encourages people to share pictures of rainbows.

Through the campaign, Samuel's family want to raise awareness and try to open up a conversation about depression

Tonight the campaign is hosting 'An Evening with Frank Bruno' at The Rendevous Hotel

As well as raising awareness, the event will also fundraise for The Upper Wharefdale Fell Rescue Association. 

Samuel's sister, Hayley Carroll said: 

"It'll be a celebration of life really.

"It's not going to be doom and gloom, it's going to be celebrating Samuel and celebrating Frank and how inspirational he is."
