A charity football match will be played in memory of a popular 26-year-old man who died from a brain haemorrhage.
Chef Peter Nelson, from Oddfellows Field, Blakeney, died at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital after collapsing in his bathroom last November.
A match in aid of Blakeney Primary School will be held on March 15 the day before his birthday.
Kick-off on Blakeney Playing Field will be at 2.30pm but anyone can gather from 1pm at the village hall. A raffle will be held after the match.
The game will be between older and younger players from Blakeney Football Club, which Mr Nelson was a member of. He also taught football to children at the primary school.
Mr Nelson left behind his mother Theresa Farrow, father Sidney Nelson, step-mother Haylie Wardhaugh, brother John Nelson, sisters Louise Nelson and Christine Putman and half-brother Sam.
