GENEROUS Arvind Shah donated all the money from his 40th birthday celebrations to Lisa Barnes Memorial Fund.
Arvind, a web developer living and working in Prickwillow, threw a party for his friends and requested, instead of bringing cards and gifts, that people donate to
Lisa’s fund through a justgiving page set up for the occasion
Arvind and his partner Sally, an NHS nurse in Ely, organised the party with the help of their friends and raised almost £500 in donations.

He said: “I am absolutely amazed at the response from our guests and everybody had a fantastic time. Being a festival-goer myself, I wanted to create a festival atmosphere and we invited people to camp out in the garden.
“We even managed to drag ourselves out of bed the morning after and serve croissants for breakfast to our guests. Robert Barnes is good friend of mine and being able to contribute to Lisa’s Fund feels fantastic.
