FUNERAL details for a much-loved character from Droitwich have been released with people asked to wear West Brom-related clothing.

John Adams, known as the MND Warrior, raised tens of thousands of pounds for MND Association and grew a large following on social media for his funny posts.

Mr Adams' funeral will be held on Tuesday, March 26 at St Augustine's (Dodderhill) Church. 

Aside from wearing clothing from his favourite football team, West Bromwich Albion, the family said there is no specific dress code and people can dress in what they feel comfortable with. 

People can gather to watch the funeral cortege depart from Droitwich Rugby Club at around 10.15am. 

Numbers inside the church will be limited, however the service will be broadcast outside on a large screen and speakers. 

Droitwich Rugby Club will also show the service live. 

The family said: "We would like to thank everyone for all the wonderful messages we have received regarding the loss of our father.

"They have been extremely comforting during this difficult time.

"We are restricted to numbers inside the church so we would be grateful if people could respect family and close friends.

"There is no specific dress code, so wear what you are comfortable with, formal, colourful, West Brom related or MND colours.

"The rugby club has a large capacity, so if anybody would like to join us there for a drink and some food to celebrate this great man's life, you are most welcome."

Mr Adams died last month following a seven-year battle with MND, after only being given 12 to 18 months to live back in 2017. 

Since his diagnosis, he was able to raise over £22,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, in a number of unique ways, such as riding his mobility scooter seven miles in seven days and dressing up as the Easter bunny whilst handing out Easter eggs to children. 

His son, Paul Adams had previously said: "The last few years, the disease really ate away at him, but he always had a smile on his face, a twinkle in his eye and was cheeky.

"He had his dark moments, of course, he did with the disease, but anyone who visited him, he would try and interact with them on his keypad and be out on social media - the unlikely joy he brought people when he was not feeling his best."

Mr Adams is survived by his two children, Paul Adams and Helen Millward, his sister Shelia Nash and five grandchildren.
