Match in aid of Rix family

A FUNDRAISING football match and fun day will be held for the family of a Hadleigh man and his mum, who died earlier this year.

Josh Rix, 23, who played for Sudbury Rugby Club and Hadleigh Cricket Club, collapsed and died just days after his mother Julie had died following a stroke while visiting her daughter in Australia in January.

The match – between a Rix family XI and a team made up of Josh’s friends – will kick off at 1pm on Saturday, March 24, at Hadleigh United Football Club.

The will also be an auction, a disco and a raffle of prizes, including a signed Barcelona shirt, tickets to Ipswich Town matches and £500 of golf equipment.
