TICKETS to rugby league and football matches are being auctioned to raise cash in memory of a Huddersfield boy.

Stainland man Mark Salmon and his son, Nathan, 15, are raising money for the West Yorkshire Forget Me Not Trust in memory of their three- year-old nephew and cousin, Joseph Salmon.

Joseph, of Marsh, died in April after suddenly being struck down by streptococcal pneumonia in his sleep.

Mr Salmon and Nathan are doing a 78-mile sponsored bike ride from Stainland to Chester Zoo - one of Joseph's favourite places - on Monday.

To help boost their fundraising they have been given tickets by the Huddersfield Giants and Huddersfield Town to auction.

The tickets, which are valid for any one game this season, will be sold in a ``text auction".

People have until September 9 to send their bids via text message to 07960975024.

Bidders must state which tickets they want.

The winner will be phoned on September 9.

All proceeds from the auction and bike ride will go to the trust, which aims to build a children's hospice for the Kirklees and Calderdale areas.
