Whilst focused on providing high value online betting opportunities, here at Compare Betting Sites we are also passionate about doing our bit for charity. Therefore, we are proud to have been named as official sponsors of An Evening with Ray Parlour; an event focused on football and raising money for Muscular Dystrophy UK.
The event, organised by Mack Events Legends, will give football fans an opportunity to get up close and personal with former Arsenal and England midfielder, Ray Parlour, as part of an action-packed evening of fun and fundraising.
Where, when and what?
The event will take place on July 5th at Barry Island Sports & Social Club with the doors set to open from 8pm. The Romford Pele will be on hand to share some stories from his time within the football world whilst guests will also be treated to a performance from local comedian, Lenny Dee as well as several fundraisers. Then, as the night draws to a close those in attendance will get a photo opportunity with the former Arsenal man.
Who is Ray Parlour?
Ray Parlour is a former Arsenal, Middlesbrough and Hull City footballer who has also featured for the England national team on ten occasions. Playing at Arsenal alongside the likes of Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry at a time when Arsene Wenger was helping to revolutionise the English game, Parlour represented something of a throwback. The unfashionable, hard-working Parlour earned ironic the nickname ‘the Romford Pele’ during a successful spell at Arsenal.
Parlour won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, one League Cup and one UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup during his twelve years at Arsenal, earning himself legendary cult hero status in the process.
Now retired, Ray Parlour can often be heard on TalkSport, giving his insight and opinions on all things football. Guests at Barry Islands Sports & Social Club on July 5th will get a unique opportunity to enjoy similar stories and the same sense of humour shared with the TalkSport listeners in person.
Muscular Dystrophy UK has been chosen as the evening’s charity partner with proceeds set to go to the organisation. To help boost the fundraising pot, guests will be treated to a both a charity raffle and memorabilia auction.
For what promises to be a night to remember, tickets for the evening start from just £25. Tickets include the following:
