They will also be raising money on the day to get a combined headstone for Parys and his brother Tyrone, who died ten years ago.

A spokesperson for the event said: “When Parys died, they moved Tyrone’s headstone, so they could be buried together, we are raising money on Sunday for a headstone, for both of them, it will be custom made.
