Christy Jordan was just two weeks off his eleventh birthday when he passed away in May of last year.

It was the sad end to a two year battle, which started on Christmas Eve, 2015, when the West Wickham boy was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour.

He is now being honoured by the rugby team he played for.

Christy joined Beccehamian’s Rugby Club when he was five years old, and his dad would cheer him on from the touch line.

During his treatment at The Royal Marsden Hospital, Christy was visited by international rugby players Chris Robshaw and Andrew Fenby.

As well as being a huge rugby fan, Christy also loved football and was a former mascot of Crystal Palace Football Club.

Beccehamian’s have organised a memorial festival for Christy, which will raise money for brain tumour research.

The mini rugby festival will be held over two weekends on Sunday (March 11) and Sunday (March 18) and will see 15 clubs compete at different age groups.

Christy’s family said in a statement: “The Christy Jordan Memorial Festival will give the family a chance to focus our attention on fundraising specifically for paediatric brain tumours as this is an area that accounts for only one per cent of general cancer funding research hence targeted fundraising.”

All proceeds from the events will go to Brian Tumour Charity, for whom more than £7,000 has been raised since Christy's death.
