A LAS Vegas themed garage brunch was held in Slough to remember a woman who died from a brain tumour.

Jo's Garage Brunch took place at Richings Park, in Iver, which raised vital funds for Thames Hospice.

Kirsty Smith, who organised the event, said her best friend Jo Castle died from a brain tumour at 36-years-old and she wanted to raise money to support the hospice that looked after her.

Slough Observer:

She said "I was buzzing the whole day.

"All I wanted was for people to have a good time and remember Jo and the whole event was a group effort and lots of people came along to support.

"Me and Jo were like chalk and cheese, she was such a kind person and we really were the best of friends."
