Football legends to help boost Rainbows Hospice

An Evening With

Two exclusive evenings with football legends are set to help raise funds for youngsters with life-limiting conditions – thanks to a celebrity events company.

Superstar Speakers is working in partnership with Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People to offer VIP evenings early in next year at which Manchester United legends Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole, Denis Irwin, and Liverpool's Jamie Carragher will appear 'in conversation'.

The first event, part of the 'Treble Winners Tour', will feature Yorke, Cole and Irwin, and takes place at Leicester's King Power Stadium on Thursday, 1 February, 2018. The three footballers were part of the Manchester United team which won the Premier League title, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League during the 1998/99 season.

The second event, 'A VIP Evening With Carragher' takes place at Nottingham's Alea Casino on Thursday, 8 March and promises an entertaining evening of anecdotes and conversation with the Liverpool legend and Sky Sports pundit.

Laura Hemmings from Superstar Speakers, said: “Our Leicester and Nottingham events are a must for any lover of football – these guys are legends of the game - and we are delighted that these exclusive evenings will also feature fundraising for Rainbows, such an amazing charity supporting youngsters with short lives and their families.”

The celebrity events company said it hoped the events would raise a 'significant' sum for the Loughborough-based hospice. There will also be an opportunity for Rainbows and their families to meet the football legends.

Hospice spokesman, Nishil Saujani, commented: “We are so grateful to our friends at Superstar Speakers for their generosity. We know the footballing legends involved in the events will draw major interest and help raise vital funds for the hospice.”

Tickets for both events are now available online at www.superstarspeakers.co.uk
