An Evening with Alan Shearer

Please email yammie@britcham.com for more information

Join us for an exclusive evening with football legend, Alan Shearer, as he shares experiences and anecdotes from his footballing career, and his current role as a pundit on BBC’s "Match of the Day". Shearer played for Southampton, Blackburn Rovers, Newcastle United and for the England national team. He holds the record for most goals scored in the Premier League by any player since its inception, with 260 goals, and a total of 422 in all competitions. He played for the England national team 60 times, serving as captain for 34 of them, and scoring in 30.

At this dinner, Shearer will also talk about his beginnings at Wallsend Boys Club, a club that also served as the starting point for Peter Beardsley, Michael Carrick and over 60 other professional footballers, and the important work that the club does for young children. The funds raised on the night through a live and silent auction, which will feature exclusive signed merchandise, will all go to the Wallsend Boys Club Hong Kong. These funds will give underprivileged children in Hong Kong an opportunity to participate in sports.

Be sure not to miss an evening of great company, delicious food and plenty of drinks at the Hong Kong Football Club.

VIP packages available, please contact Krystyna Kosciuszko at krystyna@britcham.com for more details.

 

About Wallsend Boys Club Hong Kong

Wallsend Boys Club set up a non-profit company in Hong Kong, supporting development and ‘relief from circumstances of poverty’ for underprivileged children. They provide access to coaching and facilities for the less prosperous parts of the Hong Kong community, and aim to give local Hong Kong children the opportunity to enjoy excellent facilities and coaching/training on fitness, healthy life choices, and to integrate socially in the process. They have raised sufficient funds now to have 10 children from a Hong Kong orphanage join the Hong Kong Football Club Junior Programme in 2017, and aim to have 10 further children join each year as they grow the WBC HK programme, providing many more opportunities for a greater number of underprivileged children from Hong Kong to do things the “Wallsend” way.

 

Ticket price includes a 3-course meal (main course - roasted beef tenderloin) and 3 hours of free-flow drinks. Any dietary requirements must be submitted at least 24 hours prior to the event, otherwise there is no guarantee we can accommodate your request.
