A group of Harrogate residents have set up a fundraising page in a bid to pay for a plaque dedicated to the late town legend, Rudy.

A Facebook page has been set up allowing users to share their fond memories of Rudy, who died last month.

But now members of the page have suggested raising money to pay for a bench and a plaque in honour of his memory.

Organiser, Louise Cartwright, has set up a fundraising page, which has already generated £75 in donations.

Louise said the page had an initial target of £200 but after speaking to Harrogate Borough Council, discovered that the cost of a bench and plaque could be between £600 - £1600.
