The match will kick off at 2.30pm on Sunday at the St Clement's Social Club off Foxhall Road, Ipswich.

“You come to hear of so many stories about asthma cases now, but it seems people are still not taking asthma seriously.

“A lot of people have said they didn't realist it can result in death.”

Next Wednesday will mark the third anniversary of Mr Halley-Frame's death.

The 25-year-old had been on a night out with friends in Ipswich town centre when he was struck down by an asthma attack and was later pronounced dead at Ipswich Hospital after an ambulance had to be sent from Bury St Edmunds because all the ambulances in Ipswich were busy.

Mr Halley-Frame's family have issued an open invitation for people to attend Sunday's event and as well as the football match there will be food, drinks, a bouncy castle, a barbecue, a raffle, a face painting competition, a cake stall and a lucky dip.

All money raised will go toward the Asthma Foundation.
