A charity day in the Black Country is set to raise funds for four charities close to the hearts of people attending after the sudden death of a popular teenager who played youth football for Lye Town and Dudley Town.
The family fun event at Dudley Kingswinford Rugby Club will be held this Sunday in memory of football-mad youngster Harley Barnbrook, who died of an asthma attack in February aged just 16.
It will also help charities related to Kingswinford youngster Amelia Cadwallader, aged seven, who has Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, a congenital heart defect which affects blood flow through the heart. She has spent most of her young life in the care of Birmingham Children's Hospital and is waiting for a heart transplant.
The event is being organised partly by Katie Skidmore who is a friend of Amelia's mother Liz and Harley's parents Dean and Kelly.
Harley was taken ill with an asthma attack at the Merry Hill Centre on February 15 and subsequently died. Dudley Town played Lye Town in a game dedicated to his memory and Wolves - the tea he supported - held a minute's applause in a Premier League game.
Entertainment on Sunday includes a penalty shoot out with representatives from West Bromwich Albion, axe throwing, a rodeo and live music
It will also feature magic from Mark Infiniti, a support act to Dynamo, and an auction of sporting memorabilia.
All proceeds raised will be divided equally between Headway Dudley, Birmingham Children's Hospital, Little Heart Matters and Edwards Trust Bereavement Counselling .
It takes place from 3pm to 10 at Dudley Kingswinford Rugby Club, Swindon Road, Wall Heath with entry £5 and under 15s free.
