A business held a charity fundraiser in memory of a Nailsea man who died earlier this year.

Bristol-based tax consultancy ForrestBrown raised thousands of pounds in memory of Max McGhee, whose father works at the firm.

Max died aged 23 in March when he was hit bit a train at Nailsea and Backwell Railway Station after suffering from history of mental health problems.

ForrestBrown hosted a well-attended charity event which raised more than £7,000 for the Max McGhee Memorial Fund, part of the Headlight mental health charity.

The money will be used to fund a sensory calm-down room at Elizabeth Casson House at Callington Road Hospital in Bristol.

Max’s dad, John McGhee, said: “The sensory room will be such a positive contribution for mental health in Bristol, and will help a great number of people.”
