Two sporting legends are coming to Wellingborough in support of a charity set up in memory of a little girl who died aged just five.
Sir Geoff Hurst who was part of the World Cup winning team in 1966 will be at The Cutting Room in Wellingborough on Thursday, September 22, in the first of two forthcoming events for Niamh’s Next Step.
Sporting Gold is bringing the World Cup winner as well as British former professional boxer Nigel Benn to the town for the fundraisers.
Doors open at 7pm for An Evening with Sir Geoff Hurst, which will be hosted by former Premier League referee Jeff Winter.
All tickets, costing either £40 for a standard ticket or £50 for a VIP ticket, include a professional photograph with Sir Geoff and buffet food.
An Evening with Nigel Benn is then taking place at The Cutting Room on Thursday, October 13, with doors opening at 7pm.
The same ticket prices apply as for the previous event.
Both fundraisers are in support of Niamh’s Next Step, the charity set up as a lasting legacy to Niamh Curry from Wellingborough who lost her 18-month fight with the cancer in May 2012 aged just five.
Her mum and dad Sam and Chris Curry set up the charity to help other families fighting the cancer and to raise money to fund vital research into neuroblastoma which is not currently funded by the NHS or the UK Government.
A recent fundraiser organised by Pro Action Martial Arts and Fitness in Northampton raised more than £2,200 for Niamh’s Next Step.
Hundreds of people went along to the family fun day on the Brackmills industrial estate on July 2.
For more details about either event at The Cutting Room, call Dene on 07766 826792, James on 07515 751333 or the pub on 01933 272862.
