A SPONSORED goal-kicking event will take place at the Old Albanians Rugby Club on Sunday.

Ex-professional rugby player Ciaran Hill, who now works as a junior surgeon and lives in St Albans, will kick for 12 hours non-stop to raise money for a memorial charity.

The Laura Case Trust was set up by family and friends in memory of Laura, a trainee doctor who was tragically killed in a road accident whilst working in Uganda in 2007 just after her 24th birthday.

The charity now raises money for various projects which Laura espoused.

They are mainly related to improving education and medical care in Africa.

Donations can be made at www.justgiving.com/cshill or more details can be found at www.thelauracasetrust.org.
