Sporting Stars Help Raise Thousands For The Forget Me Not

30/03/2015

On Wednesday 25th March the Stadium played host to four fantastic sporting stars, Steve Cram CBE, Lizzie Armitstead, Frank Worthington and Eorl Crabtree.

The dinner was in aid of local charity, the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, who care for children across West Yorkshire who have serious and terminal health conditions.

With the help of private donations from guests and the evening’s auctions, the dinner raised an amazing £35,000 for the hospice.

Charity Head of Corporate Fundraising, Emma Kovaleski said,”Our second annual sporting dinner was an amazing success.

“We had over 70 more attendees this year compared to our first year and the atmosphere was truly fantastic.”

Guests at the dinner heard sporting insightS from Olympic silver medallist Lizzie Armitstead, Giants prop forward Eorl Crabtree and former Huddersfield Town forward Frank Worthington, who were interviewed by retired athletic legend Steve Cram.
