The Four Friends Memorial Fund has helped to pay for new equipment for a boys’ football team.

Hats and tee shirts plus jackets, bearing the fund’s name, have been donated to the Diss Town Under 10s team at a cost of just over £450.

The fund was set up in memory of four West Suffolk men who died in an industrial accident in Great Yarmouth, in January 2011 - Thomas Hazelton, 26, Daniel Hazelton, 30, and Peter Johnson, 42, all from Stanton, and Adam Taylor, 28, from Rickinghall.

It was set up thanks to the generous support of readers of our sister title the East Anglian Daily Times, with a memorial to the four already set up in both villages.

One of the boys who plays for the Under 10s is a son of one of the men who died in the tragedy.
