Two charity events have been organised in memory of Bexleyheath Academy student Philip Lamin, who died from a cardiac arrest in February.

The Philip Lamin Cup will be held at Parkwood Leisure Centre in Erith, on June 23, and an open-air concert at his former school in Woolwich Road on July 5.

Tracey Boswell, head of Year 11 at Bexleyheath Academy, said: “We’ll be raising money for Cardiac Risk in the Young and heart charity Arrhythmia Alliance.

“It just seemed like the right thing to do to have a football match. He died playing football, something he loved doing, and the boys never got to finish the match.

“Both of them are great causes. There should be defibrillators in every school and this is something we’re striving to achieve.”
