DJ Talent to join celebs for football match for Beckton hospice

Olly Murs is among the celebrities who will be helping to raise money for a children’s hospice on Sunday

He will be joined by Ralph Little and DJ Talent as they take part in a football match for Richard House Children’s Hospice at Harlow Town’s Barrows Farm stadium on August 4.

The match will be part of a fun-filled day for all the family.

The celebrities will take on a Richard House charity team from the Romford and Dagenham area. The fun will take place from 2 – 7pm with kick off at 4pm. Other activities on the day will include face painting, a bouncy castle, a football freestyler, a gospel choir, a dance group and a celebrity look-a-like.

The event is being organised by volunteers Chloe Driscoll and Bradley and Paula Leavy.

Chloe said: “We decided to support Richard House as we all have children and think the work they do there is so important. Maybe one day we would need a service like the hospice. We also wanted to come up with an event that could be an affordable day out for the whole family, so we have worked hard to keep the cost down. We’ve had a great response so far and would love it to be a full house on the day.”

Other celebrities attending on the day include Dan Osborne from TOWIE, Victor and Billy from Big Brother, DJ Talent, Andrew Stone and Britain’s Got Talent duo Stavros Flatley.
