A CHARITY football match will provide a unique tribute to the Remembrance weekend commemorations.

A Thames Valley Air Ambulance XI will face an RAF FA Veterans XI at Court Place Farm, home of Oxford City Football Club, at 11.30am tomorrow.

The game will raise funds for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance and the RAF Association, with attendees asked to enter by donation on the gate.

It takes place 24 hours before the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, with the RAF team staying over in Oxford before travelling to London for a Remembrance Day service on Sunday.

This year also marks the centenary of the RAF, which was marked on April 1.

Remembrance services and parades will take place across the county, led by the Armistice commemorations in St Giles.

Residents and visitors of all faiths will join Lord Mayor Colin Cook at the service on Sunday, at the war memorial between 10am and 11.30am.

He will be joined by military units, uniformed organisations, community groups and civic dignitaries.

Troops from across the county will gather from 10am, then march up St Giles before a civic procession departing from St John’s College at 10.30am.
