Keeper looks forward to sell-out band night at the Alexandra Stadium
Steve Phillips is preparing for the official launch of his charity work for Leukaemia Research and the Caudwell Children’s Charity and says with the hard work and generosity of people, he hopes to raise £20,000 by the time he returns from his London-to-Paris cycle ride in early June.
The super events and fund raising kicks off in style this evening in the Carlsberg Lounge with the local band the SWaY headlining some great entertainment. Popular vocalist Tom Seals will also be performing in front of a sell out crowd at the Stadium.
The play-off Final trophy will also be present at the night, allowing fans to have a picture taken with Steve and the trophy for a small donation.
There will also be an auction of items, kindly donated by players, former players, the club and other clubs. You can still donate by purchasing a signed Wembley squad picture (£25) or a Nick Powell Wembley goal print (£10) from the Alexandra Store or by visiting Steve Phillips’ Justgiving page on the internet.
Ahead of the night, Steve said: “There has been a lot of hard work gone into organising tonight and the other events we have lined up this year. I am looking forward to it and the time has flown by.
“I am sure if there is a problem with the weather then we will put out on Twitter that we might need some people to bring some shovels to clear the snow for them to walk in, but we are going to be on no matter what.
“I just want people to come along, have a few beers and dance and enjoy the entertainment. I just want those who have bought a ticket to come and have a really good night for two great causes.
“It is a sell out and we could have sold out the room again if it had been bigger. The demand was that great. There will be more events coming up and if you haven’t got a ticket for this one, then there are other ways you can get involved or donated. The support has been fantastic.”
