Local football legend Steve Fletcher will be making a special guest appearance at a sports and entertainment evening in aid of Coping with CHAOS, part of Dorset disability charity Diverse Abilities Plus, on Saturday 23 November at the Horse and Jockey pub in Bournemouth.
Fletcher will be on hand to sign autographs and answer questions by those in attendance from 8pm until late. The evening will also be full of laughs with local comedian Mike Savage entertaining those that come along to support the charity event.
In addition, guests will have the opportunity to enter an auction and raffle with signed memorabilia and other great prizes.
The event is supporting Coping with CHAOS, which focuses on supporting the whole family, not just the child with disabilities but also their siblings and parents. It provides play activities and crucial support to over 300 families in the local Dorset community.
The event will be specifically raising funds for special red jumpers for the staff to wear during sessions. The reason behind this is many of the children Coping with CHAOS supports have difficulties that affect their social interaction, communication skills and they suffer from sensory loss. It is therefore important the children are able to recognise, identify and trust the adults that are supporting them when they are out and about in the community.
The evening event is for over 16s and tickets are £5 per person. They must be purchased in advance from the Horse and Jockey pub, Wimborne Road, Bournemouth BH10 7AA.
