Members of We Grew Up in Hereford have shared their memories of one of the great characters of Hereford's past.

Danny Lee, who mixed football with entertaining and fundraising, passed away in 2007, following a battle with cancer.

Music was a huge passion of Danny's and in the early 1970s he combined his talents with his support of Hereford United to record the terrace favourite Hereford United We All Love You.

He also made his name by balancing a pint of beer on his head during his tireless walks for charity, raising thousands of pounds in the process.

He has recently had a road in Hereford named in his honour.

A new housing estate, just off the Tillington Road towards Burghill was named Danny Lee Walk in January this year.

John Price met him a few times in the 1970's and said he was a marvellous man who did so much for charity.

He said: "He should have been recognised long before this but better late than never."

David Hirst called Danny Lee a "Hereford legend".

He said his mother worked with Mr Lee at the Green Dragon Hotel in Broad Street and had many happy memories of his various exploits, including spreading the rumour that the Beatles were coming because the Rentokill people had come to the hotel.

David Lawrence said how he used to see Mr Lee playing music at the local bars around Hereford and recalls that he spent a long time at the Shell bar at the Belmont Inn.

He remembers him singing with Jet Harris, who was the bass guitarist of the Shadows from 1958 until April 1962.

Dennis Pitt remembered Mr Lee from their school days together at Whitecross, when he used to bring his guitar and play Elvis songs in the playground.

He added that it felt appropriate that the new road was to be called Danny Lee Walk, given his tireless walking for charity.

Mr Lee's son, Andrew Boucher, said that his dad inspired him greatly growing up.

He said: "It wasn't just about the football song that he did. He did many walks with a pint on his head and raised literally thousands for many charities.

He was also a great singer & entertainer. A great inspiration for me."
