Steve Bull Foundation supports Cure Leukaemia

13th February 2014

Club Legends Cup


Cure Leukaemia is delighted to be supported by the Steve Bull Foundation having been chosen as one of their beneficiary charities for an event being held this March.

The Steve Bull Foundation was set up by former Wolves Striker, Steve Bull back in 2010. By using the success and good fortune that Steve enjoyed over the years, he wanted it to become a lasting legacy helping worthwhile causes from all sectors of the community. Sadly, football and Leukaemia have been closely linked recently with the likes of Stiliyan Petrov, Geoff Thomas and Jody Craddock’s son all suffering from the disease and all of whom have been treated through Cure Leukaemia in the West Midlands.

Molinuex, the home of Wolverhampton Wonderers Football Club where Steve Bull played for over 13 years will host a Sportsman’s Dinner on Wednesday 26th March with guest speaker Paul Merson. The former professional footballer and manager, turned football television pundit, has notably played in the Premier League for Arsenal, Middlesbrough and Aston Villa, also playing for Walsall where he spent two years as player-manager.

Paul’s career was put on the line in November 1994 when he admitted to being an alcoholic and cocaine addict. In February 2004 he admitted himself to the Sierra Tucson Clinic in Arizona to seek help for his gambling addiction.

So why not join what promises to be a fantastic evening and hear the fascinating ups and downs of Paul’s life stories, enjoy a 4 course dinner, and following all that be entertained by Aaron James, the UK’s no 1 Sporting Impressionist.

Tickets are £42.50 per person, tables can seat up to 12 and there are both VIP and sponsorship packages available. To book call 0845 524 0234.

 

“I’m delighted my foundation will be supporting Cure Leukaemia at the Sportsman’s Dinner in March at Molineux.

 

Sadly, football has been touched by leukaemia in recent years with former Wolves midfielder Geoff Thomas and former Aston Villa captain Stiliyan Petrov both contracting the disease.

 

Thankfully, Cure Leukaemia’s co-founder Professor Charlie Craddock and his team saved their lives and continue to give hope to thousands of leukaemia patients across the region so I’m hopeful we can raise significant funds for the charity in March.”
