A FUN day is taking place in Newbold on Saturday in memory of a teenager who died after playing cricket.

The event takes place at the Barley Mow every year as a tribute to popular Rugby boy Joe Spooner, who was 15.

The event starts at 3pm until late and includes circus workshop, bouncy castle, face-painting, barbecue, live music, charity auction, raffle and disco.

Joe’s father, Stephen, said; “Everyone is welcome to the event and we hope to raise around £1,000 for the Sudden Adult Death Syndrome charity.”

Among the raffle prizes are an XBox 360, Nintendo DS XL, Acer Notebook, Fuji digital camera, Sony Ericsson mobile phone a £50 Tesco shopping voucher.
