GAB Consultancy is very proud to be the PR and Marketing Partner for the Awareness for Autism Celebrity Charity Football Match. The event will be taking place on 13th May 2017 at Basford United’s Football Ground, Greenwich Avenue, Nottingham.
GAB Managing Director Charli Garner attended the Awareness for Autism event in 2016. Recognising what a worthwhile cause this was, Charli decided to lend full GAB support to make the 2017 bigger and better than ever!
Awareness for Autism was set up by John and Lauri Daly following on from the diagnosis of their son Toby with the disorder. The vision and aim for the charity is to raise important awareness for autism within the local area. The formidable couple organise fundraising events with the intention of educating others and help them to understand about Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The teams at the event are led by a celebrity contingent and this year sees the battle of the soaps, as Coronation Street’s Sean Ward will take on Emmerdale’s James Hooton. For all the soap fans out there Sean used to play bad boy Callum Logan, and James plays Sam Dingle on Emmerdale. They will lead all-star teams, including ex-professional footballers. The match will be the centre piece part of a day-long family friendly event to raise funds for the charity.
Over the past three years the event has raised thousands of pounds for Awareness for Autism. Founder of the charity, John Daly, of Ilkeston, said: “We are delighted Sean and James have agreed to head-up the teams. We are very grateful to them and the other stars who have agreed to take part. We hope everyone will make 13 May a firm date for diary 2017.”
Among those on the teams are Liam Bairstow (Corrie’s Alex Warner) and Ciaran Griffiths, who played Gary Best in The Bill, Mickey Maguire in Shameless and Dylan Hodge in Waterloo Road.
