Charity event in memory of Attleborough teenager

Family and friends of an Attleborough teenager, who died suddenly last year, will be staging a charity cycle ride and fun day in his memory later this month.

Eighteen-year-old Sam Hasler died after falling unconscious on Christmas Day and never woke up.

A post-mortem examination revealed that the Norwich City College brick-laying student had died from bronchopneumonia and sepsis.

Friends are organising a charity day on Saturday, May 28 at Gressenhall, the village where Sam used to live before moving to Attleborough.

The event will raise money for the Sam Hasler Memorial Fund, which will financially support the intensive care unit at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

His friends are set to cycle the 30 miles from Attleborough to Gressenhall, near Dereham, on the morning of the fun day and are also planning to cycle back the following day.

The event at the St Nicholas Court sheltered accommodation complex will include a bouncy castle, barbeque, stalls and a disco.
