More than £3,000 raised in memory of Norwich nightclub owner
More than £3,000 has now been raised in memory of nightclub owner Ibish Peri who died earlier this month.
After Mr Peri’s death, a fundraising page was launched by friends to bring in funds for mental health charity Mind, with an initial target of £1,000.
It is believed Mr Peri struggled with his own mental health, and at a candlelit vigil Mr Peri’s mother Dawn urged people not to keep quiet if they needed help.
She said: “I don’t want anyone to go through what my son went through. He kept it silent and hid it so well through his smiles and partying. That is how you guys do it.
“But please come from behind that smile and show us how you are feeling. If you have a male friend, pick up that phone and ask them how they are.”
