A charity football match will be held in memory of Sheffield hit-and-run victim Jasmyn Chan next weekend – a year exactly since she died.

The event has been organised by friends of the 14-year-old, who died when she was hit by speeding driver Naseeb Ellahi on Normanton Hill, Intake. She had bravely pushed her friend Tia Tucker out of the way.

The football match will be held at the Sheffield Works Department Sports and Social Club on Heeley Bank Road. Balloons will be released in memory of Jasmyn and there will also be special guests, a raffle, stalls and a special guest.

Gates open at 9.30am on Saturday, May 9, and entry is £3.

Money raised will go to causes that Jasmyn supported and a charity foundation has been set up in her name.

Lewis Booth, who is organising the event, said: “Hopefully we will get a big turnout, it will be an emotional day.”

The football finishes at noon and there is also a night event at the club from 7pm.
