It won’t only be England strikers grabbing the headlines this summer. Charity will also be netting a winner on Thursday 28th June, thanks to our charitable live screening of England’s group stage match against Belgium.
Held in the Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre on Smallbrook Queensway, the soon to be sold out event looks set to provide a spectacular blend of entertainment, sport and fundraising. With a live performance from celebrity football impressionist, Darren Farley, alongside entertainment hosted by Sky Sports presenter, Gary Newbon, and Guest of Honour, Peter Shilton OBE, there will certainly be much for guests to enjoy.
Famous for his hilarious impressions of football icons including Steven Gerrard, Harry Kane and Wayne Rooney, Darren Farley is a much-loved figure in the world of football, and we can’t wait to see him perform live.
He will be joined by sporting icons including England’s most capped player Peter Shilton OBE, Aston Villa’s European Cup winning goal scorer Peter Withe and Premier League referee Andre Marriner. Alongside host Gary Newbon, with many years of experience between them, this impressive roster will be providing analysis to ensure guests get the most out of the evening.
A crucial game in England’s World Cup campaign, this will be England’s final game in the group stages, and it is looking to be their toughest. The final overall game of the group, the match will hopefully see both teams at two wins apiece, making this an exciting nail-biter of a match to decide who had an easier route to the final. Whatever the result, the event will be backing our boys with an unabashedly patriotic atmosphere to the whole evening.
The Nominated Charities
The Eventmasters Foundation will be raising money for a number of charities throughout the course of the evening, with the help of our sister company, the Silent Auction Events Company. The nominated charities are;
LoveBrum is located in the heart of Birmingham and supports under-publicised initiatives across the region, designed to help provide meaningful change to citizens through financial support and fundraising efforts. Recently, LoveBrum has supported Birmingham Blaze FC, a initiative to provide a safe welcoming environment to LGBT youth looking to play football, as well as Stepping Stones Global, a charity that provides support to adults suffering from mental health issues, and the Birmingham Museums Trust.
Scotty’s Little Soldiers provides support to the children of fallen service personnel, providing support through holiday breaks and gifts at difficult times of the year, as well as providing counselling and support to struggling families.
The QEHB charity supports patients, families and staff at their hospitals by providing ‘added extras’ that are over and above that which is provided by the NHS.
This can be any number of things, from cutting edge radiation treatment and research grants, to long term initiatives like bereavement support for military families, to small things like toys for young patients. The Charity needs your help because these things are simply not available through the NHS; this exemplary care and cutting edge technology relies on donations and fundraising events like our silent auction to continue providing support to patients in Birmingham.
The charity holds a special place in the heart of Eventmasters CEO, Denise Sheasby, who was a former sister at the hospital.
