Kevin Keegan OBE is a former footballer and manager, and much loved hero of the England team. Twice the winner of the Ballon d’Or, he famously played for Liverpool and Newcastle United amongst others, before moving into management and even enjoying a spell as the England manager.

To boost the funds raised for Cancer Research, a prize raffle and a live auction will be held. The evening’s entertainment will continue with top comedian Josh Daniels.

Sponsors are being sought, and the gold package includes a champagne reception, personal meet and greet with Kevin Keegan, a sponsor photograph with Kevin Keegan which will be framed and sent to you following the dinner, prime seating, entry into the sponsors draw and your company details featured in the programme.
