A FOOTBALL tournament in memory of a trainee teacher from New Addington who died of cancer aged just 22 has raised almost £5,000 for St Christopher's Hospice.

Craig Muir, of Castle Hill Avenue, died in 2012 just six days after being told his cancer had returned following his initial diagnosis of malignant melanoma in February 2010.

The tournament and fun day at Greenacres, in Limpsfield Road, Warlingham, was running for the third year and attracted more than 250 people, including Craig's friends from Charles Darwin School and the University of Kent.

Julie Muir, Craig's mum, said: "It went great, the weather was dry and bright.

"There was a great turn-out and we had a minute's applause for Craig which is always quite emotional.

"The event is going to keep on going and we've already had a lot of interest. I think Craig would have loved it. A bit of candy floss and a kickaround, that was a bit of him."

The winning team was made up of Craig's friends from Charles Darwin, whose name was a fitting tribute to their friend – Muir! Muir! Muir! How Do We Like It?

The event took around £4,800 on the day but Mrs Muir expects the total to beat £5,000 after all donations are collected.
