and live on Freeview channel 276
The event on Friday, June 2 will be raising money for local charity Heel and Toe and organisers are looking for tables to be filled.
At its two Therapy Centres based in Chester le Street in County Durham, Heel & Toe provides free and subsidised therapies to around 220 children with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities every week. They receive no government funding and currently need to raise £1,000,000 each year, to continue providing life-changing therapies for children across the North East.
Nearly half of all the charity’s funding is raised through events which allow local children to have various types of physical therapy depending on their needs.
Tickets for the night can be bought from the Heel and Toe website with individual entry available from £75. A standard table of ten guests costs £700 with an arrival drink and two course meal included.
VIP tables are also available at a cost of £1,000 for ten guests or £1,200 for 12.
The three guests have a combined 677 Newcastle United appearances between them with stories during their time at the club ranging from 1987 until 2002. The event will be hosted by actor and writer Steve Wraith.
