Solihull Moors are excited to announce a Legends Charity Match and Family Fun Day, hosted at Studley Sports Centre on Sunday 8th August.
Raising funds for the Solihull Moors Foundation, Birmingham City All Stars and Wolves All Stars will face off on Studley’s brand-new state-of-the-art 3G pitch.
The match will kick off at 12:30pm, with doors opening from 10am. There’s entertainment for all the family to enjoy, including face painting, a bouncy castle and a variety of stalls.
Tickets are priced at just £5 per person and can be purchased online here: https://solihullmoorsfc.ticketco.events/uk/en/e/blues_all_stars_vs_wolves_all_stars
Following the conclusion of the game, there will be a special opportunity to get your hands on the match-worn shirts from the charity encounter.
In association with Graham Budd Auctions, the shirts will be auctioned off in the Abbeyfields Lounge.
These are unique, one-off shirts produced for the Legends Event only! From Blues icon Martin O’Connor to Jody Craddock in the old gold and black, you could be taking home your very own piece of memorabilia from the day.
Stay tuned for the two full confirmed squads in the lead-up to the game and discover who’ll be joining the likes of O’Connor, Craddock, Lee Carsley, Karl Henry and Dave Edwards. Not to forget former Moors manager Marcus Bignot and former midfielder Darren Carter!
Blues are managed by voice of Midlands sport, Tom Ross, and former defender, Kevan Broadhurst, while Wolves are led by their former attacker Mel Eves.
Refreshments will be available throughout, with the bars open and food served.
*Car parking is available at a charge of £2 per car.
Solihull Moors Foundation
Community charity Solihull Moors Foundation - an initiative from Solihull Moors Football Club – is starting work on a new £1.2m community hub, which will be a centre from which to deliver its health and well-being support services such as mental health support.
The community hub, being developed on the Solihull Moors Football Club site on Damson Park, will enable the Solihull Moors Foundation to deliver sessions such as youth clubs, musical therapy groups, coffee mornings, employability sessions and social clubs focusing on loneliness. It will also host its food and hygiene bank collections from there, and will be looking to develop this further to include donation of items, such as football kits.
The Solihull Moors Foundation also plans to work with local partners to offer employability courses for young people and alternative education pathways – and during the schools holidays, the hub will provide a space to offer alternative holiday camps. The hub will also aid the foundation in getting involved with Initiatives to feed children and support families on a low incomes.
The Legends Event follows on from The Moors 4’s fundraiser which took place last month, and raised over £37,000 and counting – you can still donate towards the Foundation’s future by clicking HERE!
