Family and friends of Penryn fishermen Josh Winsper, who died 19 months ago, are to celebrate what would have been his 26th birthday later this month while raising money for a charity now close to their hearts.

Josh died after falling into the water at Milford Haven while he was on his way back to his trawler after a night out in April 2016. Since then, his sister Paige has been working with the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) UK to spread the message "Don't Drink and Drown."

Paige is the driving force behind Stomp For Josh which is to be held on October 21 at Penryn Football Club and will feature top DJs including Cozzie Watt, High Rollers and Hidin, most of whom are giving their time for free. There will also be an auction and the money raised on the night will be donated to the RLSS.

Although Josh's birthday was on October 11, the DJs were unavailable until the 21st. "We just really wanted to get everyone together to celebrate Josh's birthday and instead of it being sad, we wanted everyone to be dancing and laughing the way he would have liked it. But, we also want to raise money for the RLSS."

The venue has special meaning. "Penryn Football Club was where we held Malania's (her daughter) christening and Josh died just a week later," said Paige. "That was the last time everyone was together - all the family and Josh's friends - so what better place for it than where we all had our last drink with Josh?"

There are 330 tickets for sale which are "flying out" but Paige is keen to ensure they are all sold to maximise the amount that can be donated to the RLSS. They cost £12 and are available from the Kings Arms and Bar 20 in Penryn, and from Electric Beach tanning salon in Falmouth's High Street.

While Paige has been busy organising Stomp For Josh, she has also continued to work on the Don't Drink and Drown campaign. She will be travelling up to the RLSS headquarters in Worcester later this week to meet more of the team and speak to others in her position.

Paige hopes to work with local schools next year to spread the message that alcohol and water do not mix and would also like to work with Falmouth RNLI. "I am still fighting to get the message out there," she said. "I don't want other families to go through what we have. Falmouth is surrounded by water and full of some amazing bars so the danger is here."

Only last week while on a night out Paige stopped five young people from jumping from the pier into the water. "See them walk back up the steps to Club I made me feel great," she said. "It was so much better than seeing them pulled from the water. It was great to know they had listened to me."
