The football match will raise money for Ashgate Hospicecare, which helped Wendy in the final stages of her illness.

PE teacher Rich Tinsley said: “It’s a great event as the kids get to play at a top stadium and we also get to support a great charity which has some connection with just about every single person in Chesterfield in some way.”

Tickets are £2 for adults and £1 for children.
