A 17-year-old is organising a football match in aid of East Anglia Air Ambulance and his sports academy.
Connor Bagley, a student at Dereham Education and Soccer Academy (DESA), is holding the match between the Dereham’s first team and ex-DESA students.
Mr Bagley, from Thorpe St Andrew, is organising the event as part of his diploma in sport science.
He said: “I wanted to get the town involved a lot more with the club and create a real friendly environment.
“It would be nice to see the town come together as a whole mainly because you’re supporting your home club and it brings everyone together.
The match kicks off at 7.30pm on Friday at Dereham Football Club, £5 entry includes a burger or hotdog.
A raffle will include donations from Thorpe Plant and Garden Centre. Businesses interested in donating prizes contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
