A charity football match to remember Bexleyheath schoolboy Philip Lamin is being held on Sunday (June 23).

The 16-year-old, who went to Bexleyheath Academy, died from a cardiac arrest on February 5 and money raised will go to Cardiac Risk in the Young and heart charity Arrhythmia Alliance.

It takes place at Parkwood Leisure Centre in Erith at 2.30pm. Tickets cost £3 for students, £5 for adults and under 11s go free. You can pay on the door.

The Philip Lamin Cup is one of two events which the school hopes will raise money for the two charities.

There will be a concert on Friday, July 5 at the school in Woolwich Road.

Head of year 11 Tracey Boswell said: “It’s a great opportunity to raise money for charities who really need support and fundraising.

“It’s a great cause and there will be a presentation afterwards of two defibrillators which have been donated to the school.

“There should be defibrillators in every school and this is something we’re striving to achieve.”
