FAMILY and friends of a student killed in an accident are raising money for sport in a charity event.
Organisers are hoping Sunday's event will be the first of a series of fundraisers in memory of Huddersfield University student Ben Randall.
The keen sportsman was hit by a forklift truck just a few days after his 21st birthday last November.
He was in the second year of a health and sport science degree and hoped to be a PE teacher. Ben represented the university at rugby and had also played with the Huddersfield Rugby Union Club academy sides.
At the time of his death, he had been selected to play representative rugby for Eire students.
Fund-raisers are holding their event at Lockwood Park on Sunday, starting at 1.30pm.
A match will be played between the university rugby league and union sides and there will be an auction and raffles.
Former Huddersfield Giants captain Danny Russell will kick-off the game.
An organiser said: "Ben was, during his short lifetime, a strong believer in getting young people away from the TV and computer game culture and encouraging the benefits of sport.
"The funds we raise will therefore be used to support sports facilities for use by young people and children of the town."
Ben was killed in an accident involving a forklift truck in Roundhay Park, Leeds.
The young student lived with his mother Jean in Wakefield Road, Dalton. He had a sister Ruth and two brothers, David and Tom.
A man was later arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
The banker for the Ben Randall Memorial Sports Trust Fund is HSBC Market Street Huddersfield.
The account no is 4008590003883.
