A heartfelt tribute was made to a former pupil who died of cancer at a school’s charity event.
St Columba’s allumus Harry-Krish Mootoosamy was 39 when he lost a short battle with pancreatic cancer in 2014, leaving behind three children in St Albans.
Family and friends of Harry-Krish came together on May 28 for the second Mootoofest at the college, and raised nearly £2,000 for The Harry-Krish Mootoosamy Foundation.
The organisation, which is currently applying for charitable status, performs music to terminally ill children and supports pancreatic cancer research.
The third Mootoosamy Memorial Football Match was also held at the event - the brainchild of Harry-Krish’s wife Asha and his childhood friend Simon Lodge.

Harry-Krish’s sister, Anna-Ruby, said he is still missed: “He was fit, healthy and living life to the full. A wonderful father, husband, brother and friend to many.”
She thanked businesses who donated prizes and staff at the school, particularly Jim Lewis, for help in hosting the event.
