Town stars ready to roll back the years in charity showdown
A charity football match which will see a host of Ipswich Town legends play at Bury Town’s Ram Meadow is returning on Sunday (3pm).
The likes of Kieron Dyer and Titus Bramble will be gracing Ram Meadow to support the special match which will be raising money for West Suffolk Hospital Charity’s Forget-Me-Not Dementia Campaign and the ITFC Academy.
For the second successive year, the ITFC Legends will be taking on a Forget-Me-Not FC, made up of football fans who have paid for the privilege of taking on their heroes.
Alongside the fans favourites, there will also be four members of the public who will wear the Legends’ shirt.
Dave Gooderham, fund-raising manager for West Suffolk Hospital Charity, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming back the ITFC Legends for our special charity football match at Ram Meadow.
“It is a great occasion and a great chance for Ipswich fans to get photos and autographs of some famous names from the club’s past while supporting two worthwhile charities.”
A beer festival, live music and a special Under-10s Bury Town match will add to the occasion. Kick-off is 3pm with tickets, priced £10 adults and £5 children, available on the gate from midday.
Alongside the match, West Suffolk Hospital Charity has organised an online auction of iconic Ipswich Town images celebrating big moments from the past as well as photos from this year’s exciting promotion challenge.
The auction items end between 6pm and 8pm on Sunday night and can be viewed at www.wsh.nhs.uk/itfcphotoauction.aspx
All money raised from the week-long auction will be split between West Suffolk Hospital Charity’s Forget-Me-Not Dementia Campaign and the ITFC Academy.
