“We’ve done lots of fundraising for the Hospice over the years but this will be our biggest event to date and we are hoping it will become an annual match to support the charity,” said Danny-Lee.
“The Hospice is such a fantastic charity which has helped so many families and people we know in our local community.
“My mum worked there for 22 years and I got to experience the amazing care and support it gives when it cared for my grandad before he died.
“Spectators will get to rub shoulders with some of the biggest names on TV and if you’ve had a loved one cared for by the Hospice, this is the perfect opportunity to show your support.”
There will also be performances from Apogee Stage School during the two half time intervals and Elf on the Shelf acrobats from More Than Mascots.
Tickets cost £10 for adults and £5 for children, all money raised will be donated to help local people who need the Hospice’s care, now and in the future.
