Gallery: Charity game is a winner in memory of well-loved Wisbech man Riki Boughen
A football match and fun day held in memory of Wisbech man Riki Boughen scored for charity at the weekend.
Riki, 43, died after a collision on the A47 on January 17, 2018, and his family organised Sunday’s event to raise money for Brake, the road safety charity.
Held at the Wisbech Town Football Club the event raised £770, including a £250 cheque from Riki’s employer Tangent Plant Hire.
The day, which saw the Woodman’s Cottage FC take on Wisbech Acorns, also included stalls and a raffle, with lots of prizes donated by local businesses.
Riki was a front seat passenger in a van, which was driven by James Cox, 46, who was also killed, when it collided head-on with a coach on Constitution Hill in King’s Lynn.
Riki’s sister, Rachel Rostron, who organised Sunday’s event, described him as a “much-loved son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and grandson, who was very popular and loved by many. Every room he walked into he lit up.”
She was delighted with the day’s success and added a non-uniform day at her husband’s work today (Wednesday) will add to the charity’s total.
