Worthing Vs Man United Legends Football Match raises £26k for DeafKidz!

3rd May 2023

We are thrilled to share that our Manchester United legends vs Worthing legends football match on Sunday the 26th March 2023 raised an amazing £26,000!

We are overwhelmed with the success of the event and want to say a massive thank you to everyone that made the day possible. The rain didn’t dampen the incredible atmosphere at Woodside Stadium, with thousands cheering the legends at this sold out event. It was a fantastic match, with the Man United Legends winning 5-2 to the Worthing Legends. The money raised from the ticket sales and the VIP reception following the match, was a total of £26,432. This will make a huge difference to our small charity, and support our vital work responding to the safeguarding and protection of deaf children and young people worldwide.

We are incredibly grateful to Worthing Football Club for hosting the event and to all the fantastic Legends from Sussex and Manchester United who took part in the match.

The event wouldn’t have been possible without our incredible event sponsors – thank you to Alitam Group, XRAI Glass and Healys. A big thank you to the Mascots from the East Sussex Deaf Children Society and to PinnacleUK who kindly sponsored the mascot T-shirts. Special thanks to our friend John Price for all his hard work putting this event together.
