Footballers will play a match against former Arsenal players to raise money for an epilepsy charity.

Xheladin Pira, of Whitings Road, High Barnet, has rallied his friends together to support Epilepsy Research UK.

The team, made up of his colleagues at Giraffe Restaurant, in Watford, hope to raise “as much as possible” for the cause.

They have been busy practicing their skills ahead of the match, which will be played against Arsenal Charity FC.

The event will include food, a raffle draw as well as activities for children.

It will be held on Sunday, June 22 at Maccabi London Brady, in Arkley, from 10am.
