The fundraising fun day is set for Sunday August 30 at Rolls Royce Leisure and starts from midday onwards. Monisha Lindo, campaign founder, said: “Joe Cannon, also known as Cheek, was in an accident and was left fighting for his life in hospital for two days, but sadly he didn’t pull through.”

Hundreds attended a vigil for the popular 16-year-old following his death.
