A fundraising football tournament will be held in Queen’s Park in memory of a teenager who was stabbed to death in Harlesden.
All monies raised at the sport event will be donated to the family of David Headlam, from Willesden, who died after he was knifed in Drayton Road on June 29.
The event is being held by Cheryl Forde a progression coordinator at Street League, an organisation that empowers youths age between 16 and 25 through football.
Mr Headlam, the son of Pentecostal church minister Bishop Alonzo Headlam of World Vision Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ, graduated from one of Street League’s programmes in March this year.
Paying tribute, Ms Fords said: “David’s death has not only been a huge shock to us but has saddened everyone who worked with him, including the other participants. He was extremely quiet and humble, with a cheeky smile.
“I thought the tournament would be a good way to remember his love for football, friends and family.”
The tournament will take place at the Moberly Sports Centre in Kilburn Lane, Queen’s Park, on August 9.
