Liz Dawn - Liz Dawn Pulls In Thousands For Bill Tarmey

British star Liz Dawn helped raise $19,500 (£13,000) at a charity dinner held in honour of her former onscreen husband Bill Tarmey on Friday (04Oct13).

The 73-year-old actress battled to recover from heart surgery last month (Sep13) so she could attend the memorial for Tarmey, who passed away last year (12).

Dawn, who also has lung disease emphysema, paid tribute to Tarmey at the bash in Manchester, England, which generated $19,500 for Brain Tumour Research.

The actor's widow Ally told reporters, "It's been very emotional."

Dawn and Tarmey played popular couple Vera and Jack Duckworth on the long-running U.K. soap Coronation Street.
