More info
This one is a testimonial dinner for Harry Ellis, who played over 170 times for Leicester Tigers, and also pulled on the number 9 shirt for England and the British and Irish Lions.
Ellis will be joined by Dusty Hare, another Leicester legend and the all-time leading points scorer in first class rugby having amassed over 7,300 points throughout his career, as well as Dean Richards, who played 48 times for England and also represented the British and Irish Lions.
Doha favourite, John Bentley will also be accompanying the players, himself having represented England and the Lions and now a strong ambassador for sports charities around the world.
The evening will be a three course dinner at the W hotel, with sporting memorabilia to be auctioned and a question and answer session with Harry and the guys.

The charities Harry is supporting this year are:

Wishes 4 Kids

Wishes 4 Kids has been created to grant a wish for children and youngsters in Leicestershire who are life limited, terminally ill, have experienced life-changing physical or emotional traumas, have suffered major abuse or are diagnosed as HIV Positive. The Charity grants wishes for those of eighteen years and below.

Wishes 4 Kids has already granted hundreds of wishes for local children. Sadly we do not have a magical cure for the suffering of these youngsters, however, we can bring a short period of respite. The time when a child has a wish granted is a moment that will be treasured by them for the rest of their life. It is also a time which parents will remember - that time when their child forgot the suffering

SpecialEffect is a charity dedicated to helping ALL young people with disabilities to enjoy computer games. For these children, the majority of computer games are simply too quick or too difficult to play, and we can help them and their parents to find out which games they CAN play, and how to adapt those games that they can't.
Matt Hampson Foundation

Matt Hampson was an England Under 21 International and Leicester Tigers Prop forward who was left paralysed from the neck down and breathing via the aid of a ventilator after a training ground accident over five years ago. Matt also now raises money for other similar injured sportsmen and women.

Inspiring and supporting young people seriously injured through sport.
We will also be providing a portion of the night’s funds to the Think Pinky foundation, supporting schoolchildren in Nepal.

If you are interested, please email and I will send you a booking form for the evening.
