Hundreds of people have paid tribute to the 20-year-old who died earlier this month after battling two forms of cancer.

A post published on the #Baczac Facebook page states the celebration of life service will be held at Northampton Saints’ home ground on April 1 from 1pm.

The dress code is no black tie but the family would like guests to wear a check shirt with white t-shirt underneath, with black or colourful jeans and smart shoes.

The family would also like guests to bring a single orange flower and attach a short message on a piece of card.

An event will also be held at the Old Northamptonians Rugby Club from 2.30pm when people are invited to raise a glass in Zac’s memory.

Any donations are asked to be given to the Northampton ONs to help the Billy’s House charity which was an invaluable resource to the family over the past seven months.
