Woolmer's memorial service on Wednesday
March 30, 2007 20:19 IST
Murdered Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer's memorial service will be held in Cape Town on Wednesday, according to a press release by the Bob Woolmer Trust Fund on Friday.
The service will take place at the Wynberg Boys' High School with former South African and Warwickshire fast bowler Allan Donald and leading sports scientist Professor Tim Noakes will be among the speakers.
Woolmer, 58, was a previous coach of the South African national team and had lived in Cape Town for over 20 years.
The choir will be from the Langa community and there will also be speakers from the Avendale Cricket Club, both of whom benefited enormously from Woolmer's coaching in previously disadvantaged communities.
Jamaican police launched a murder inquiry four days later after reporting that the Briton was killed by strangulation.
