Steve Plunkett’s Plunky’s All-Stars charity football match will take place at Peterborough United’s ground on 1 June this, raising funds for The Norfolk Hospice Tapping House.
The Norfolk-based charity, established almost 40 years ago, provides care and support to those living with or affected by life limiting illness.
The All-Stars match has been held annually for the last eight years and has now raised £63,000 for charity, with £18,500 raised last year for Brain Tumour Research.
So far this year £4,819 has been raised for Tapping House, nearly a quarter of the £20,000 target.
Plunkett said, “We have played at Wolves, Norwich City three times, MK Dons and Peterborough United’s ground three times, having a lot of fun and raising some desperately needed funds for the various charities along the way. Every little bit helps, and we are still looking for donations and sponsorship, and also raffle and auction prizes.”
Meanwhile, this year’s match will be played in memory of friend and colleague Mike Yorke, who sadly passed away last December after a long battle with a brain tumour. He played in every single match apart from the 2022 game.
