A memorial football match will be held to commemorate the life of a teenage girl who was stabbed to death on a bus.
Christina Edkins, aged 16, was travelling to Halesowen’s Leasowes High School when she was killed in Hagley Road, Edgbaston on March 7.
Two supermarket workers are now planning a fundraising match for her family.
Organiser Syd Ramzan, along with Asda colleague Daniel Perry, said the teams will be from Asda Halesowen and Asda Dudley.
The match is on Easter Sunday, March 31 at 7pm, at Lye Football Club.
The players will each donate £5 and there will also be collection bucket at the entrance to the stands.
Mr Ramzan. a former Leasowes High pupils, said: “I went to that school in the 1990s and what happened to Christina was really local and it felt really close to us. We just wanted to help.”
The community has rallied round since Christina’s death, including her friends and favourite football team West Bromwich during a half-time tribute this month.
A book of condolence was opened at St Peter’s Church in Lapal, Halesowen and shops have raised thousands of pounds.
Last week 22-year-old Phillip Simelane of Walsall appeared at Birmingham Crown Court charged with Christina’s murder.
