Charity day at Glossop pub in memory of Paddy Campbell

Paddy Campbell.

A charity day is being held at a Glossop pub to raise money in memory of a well-loved local character. 

Paddy Campbell, a former gym owner, died at his home in Whitfield in April at the age of 76. 

A former Manchester United season ticket holder and originally from Ireland, Paddy owned The Bodycheck gym on Gladstone Street for a number of years and was well liked by everyone who knew him. 

He left behind his wife Daphne, two sons Colin and Glenn, and six grandchildren Jordan, Lucy, Sophie, Reuben, Johnny and Thomas. 

The charity day is being held at The Howard Arms, on High Street East, on Sunday 4 September from 1pm to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

There will be a BBQ, an auction, a raffle, live music and much more. 

Paddy was a regular at the pub and landlord Dave Greenall told us he wanted to host a special event in his memory. 

He said: “Paddy was popular in the community and we are hoping that lots of his friends will turn up and we get a lot of donations for Cancer Research.” 

Paddy’s son Glenn said: "My dad always brought a smile to everyone’s face. He made a big impact on Glossop and he is very sadly missed.”
