A football match held yesterday in honour of Captain Stephen Healey, who was killed while serving in Afghanistan in May, raised at least £1,950 for charity. The money is being donated to Stephen's charity of choice, Blind Veterans UK, who he did a lot of work with in years gone by.

Future matches will be held every year on the anniversary of Stephen's death, on the May bank holiday.
