At 8pm yesterday evening (1 July 2012) around 500 friends and family of Jordan Green congregated on the Stray in Harrogate.
Jordan Green from Harrogate High School sadly took his own life this week – this event was arranged by his friends using facebook and was a tribute to him.
By 8:30pm the lanterns started to be launched, some with letters to Jordan attached or photographs. The sky then began to fill with lantern after lantern as they floated down the Stray and towards the Starbeck direction.
The weather remained clear although the breeze made it tricky for some to light the lanterns
This was a touching tribute to Jordan and one made more special as it had been thought of and put together by his friends. It was also attended by Jordan’s mother, Heidi Green.
