Isaac Nash Trust raises £80,000 for Kirkburton skate park
A trust fund set up in memory of a West Yorkshire schoolboy lost at sea in Wales last summer has raised more than £80,000.
Isaac Nash from Huddersfield got into difficulties at Aberffraw in Anglesey on 29 August and was swept away despite attempts to save him.
His grandparents, Suzanna and Howard Lewis, said a skate park would be built in his memory.
Mr Lewis said there was a "tremendous upswell of community spirit".
"It's heart-warming and has taken quite a few people by surprise," he said.
"We've never really seen anything like this so there's some comfort in that."
The Isaac Nash Trust hopes to raise £100,000 for a skate park at Kirkburton recreation ground near Isaac's family home.
The hope is to also raise £10,000 for the RNLI.
Isaac's 10-year-old brother Xander also got into difficulties but was saved, but Isaac's body was never found.
In the days after he disappeared friends released lanterns in tribute to him.
