HILLSBOROUGH mum Anne Williams is hoping to attend a fundraising event tonight.
Anne, who lost her 15-year-son Kevin in the disaster and was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer, is still closely involved with the campaign to re-open inquests into the 96 Liverpool fans who died in Sheffield 23 years ago.
She spoke with Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham this week as local MPs push for another parliamentary debate following an e petition requesting a new inquest into Kevin Williams' death to be speeded up gained more than 100,000 signatures.
She said: "Andy Burnham rang me on Monday and said he and many of the local MPs were doing everything they could to lobby support for another debate.
"I know the Attorney General has already said it may now be possible to push Kevin's case forward quicker but It's good that people are still trying to move things on so we'll see what happens."
The fundraising event tonight takes place at the Copple House pub on Copplehouse Lane in Fazakerley from 7.30pm and will include a karaoke competition – money raised will go towards the Hillsborough campaign.
