Coronation Street legend Bill Tarmey will be laid to rest next week in Ashton-under-Lyne.
The 71 year old who played hen-pecked husband Jack Duckworth for three decades died at his home in Tenerife on November 9.
His funeral will take place next Tuesday at Albion United Reformed Church.
Bill's family said they would appreciate his friends, present and former colleagues and members of the public making a donation in memory of Bill to the charity, Brain Tumour Research, instead of sending flowers.
Fundraising page has been set up here in his memory.
