FAMILY and friends of a much-loved Ipswich man who died after a severe asthma attack are preparing to turn out in force this Bank Holiday Monday to raise money for charity.

It is now two years since popular hospital worker David Halley-Frame died while on a night out with friends in Ipswich town centre but his memory lives on strong among all those who knew him.

In a tribute to their friend, Mr Halley-Frame's mates will take to the football field at St Clement's Social Club in Ipswich for a charity match in aid of Asthma UK.

The event will be the third held in memory of the 25-year-old - but this year there will also be a seven-a-side women's game.

Among the players will be some of Mr Halley-Frame's relatives, plus a large contingent of his friends, as well as some of his co-workers from St Clement's Hospital.

Mr Halley-Frame died on August 27, 2005, after collapsing near Upper Orwell Street. It took an ambulance 31 minutes to arrive and by the time it did he could not be revived.
