Two sporting fundraisers in memory of a teenage crash victim have raised more than £1,600 in his honour.
Taylor High of Lowestoft died in March 2011 at 19 after being involved in a car crash, prompting his family to fundraise in his memory.
Their latest drive saw a darts competition and a football match raise a combined £1,664 for the Taylor High Memorial Fund.
Elaine High, his mother, said: 'I want to thank everybody from the bottom of my heart who came along to both events. It means so much that his memory can live on.'
The football match was an intensely fought contest between Ole Frank and Waveney XI - his two former teams - which finished 2-2 after 90 minutes. His brother, 30-year-old Curtis High, then scored the winning penalty for Ole Frank in a shoot out.
