The first event by a charity set up in memory of a 14-year-old hit-and-run victim will be held later.

The Jasmyn Chan Foundation will raise money for good causes supported by Jasmyn, who died in May.

The Sheffield teenager's family has sold about 300 tickets for the event and hope to raise £5,000 in order to gain official charity status.

It will be start at 13:30 BST at The Embassy Club in Sheffield and various bands will play.

Jasmyn was killed while crossing Normanton Hill in Sheffield on 9 May.

Before her death, she donated 27in of her hair to the Little Princess Trust to be made into a wig for children with cancer.

It is one of the charities that will benefit from the foundation, along with Teenage Cancer Trust.

A man has appeared in court charged with causing Jasmyn's death by dangerous driving in a hit-and-run crash.

Naseeb Ellahi, of Ash Road, Birmingham, will appear at Sheffield Crown Court on Tuesday.
