A charity football match is being held in memory of a St Albans man who died from cancer two and a half years ago.
Alex Demain died at the age of 29 from cancer connected to Crohn’s Disease, and was a dedicated fundraiser for Crohn’s and Colitis UK.
His friends organised the match as Alex used to play for Sandridge Rovers, and in two years have raised nearly £20,000 for the charity in his memory.
There will also be a youth netball and youth football game on the day, as well as a hog roast, a barbecue, a bouncy castle and face-painting.
A raffle and auction will give attendees the chance to win signed Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham football shirts, family zoo tickets, hair and nail vouchers, restaurant vouchers and more.
