PLYMOUTH â€” A simple promise made to a friend has grown into an opportunity for many as the legacy of Craig Woolfington lives on in his hometown.
Several years ago Woolfington died suddenly and tragically of cancer. Mark Lindsey made a promise to his friend that he would be sure that Woolfingtonâ€™s daughter Kate would attend college. Along with another close friend of Woolfingtonâ€™s, Tony Plothow, the pair have done their best the past few years to raise money for that cause.
Theyâ€™ve done so well that they have expanded their friendâ€™s legacy to help many other people.
