FAMILY and friends of a man who died after hitting his on a pavement during a brawl are appealing for businesses to help raise money for the hospital that treated him.

Les and Jan Baker, mum to Paul Baker who tragically died after a fight in Chislehurst on May 7 last year, and his friend Marc Hooper are holding a fundraising event at the Marriott Hotel, Bexleheath on May 30.

The Paul Baker's Charity Fundraising Dinner Dance, due to be hosted by former Arsenal footballer Terry Mancini, will raise money for the head injuries unit at Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup.

Mr Hooper says that £3,000 has already been raised in ticket and raffle sales but urges companies in the community to donate goods for their auction.

He said: "We need businesses in the area to donate prizes for us to auction so that we can raise as much money as we can for the hospital.

"Paul was treated at the hospital and although it was too late for him, we want to raise money for the Trust to help them buy some specialist equipment for the unit."

The dinner dance, starting from 6.30pm, will include a three course meal and welcome drink as well as music and entertainment.

Mr Baker, 25, died 32 hours after a fight outside The Lounge, Chislehurst suffering from fatal brain injuries.

Three friends, Oliver and Christopher O'Bryan and Daniel Evans, were cleared of manslaughter by an Old Bailey jury last Tuesday (22).
