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.

The match will be held at Sandridge Rovers FC, Spencer Playing Fields, Sandridge on Sunday, May 6 from 11am to 5pm.
