Alfie Jack Brown was just 23 when he passed away in July, after suffering from a cardiac arrest while playing football with his friends.

Born in Dulwich, he was working to complete his degree in History and English Literature, at the University of Birmingham, so that he could follow his dreams of becoming a writer.

The university have said it hopes to give him an honorary degree, but Alfie’s family are looking to go further.

One month since his passing, they have set up a fundraising campaign to commemorate his life.

Money raised will go towards publishing a book Alfie had been working on before his death.

His sister, Carly Brown, has said that any donation can make a big difference to keeping his memory alive.

“Since the age of about 10 Alfie dreamt of becoming an author. He had been working on a fantasy novel for almost a decade and this memorial fund is partly dedicated to publishing his work.

“Alfie was taken too soon, but we can keep his wonderful imagination and bottomless creativity around us always.

“The fund will support other aspiring writers who need help telling their stories. We will remember Alfie laughing, chatting, dancing and dreaming."

Any leftover funds will also be split between two charities which are yet to be decided on.

One will help support young people with heart conditions and their families and the other will be in support of young writers.
