Beattie Statue Fundraiser at Gainsborough Labour Club
Monday, 25th Mar 2019 10:35

Gainsborough Labour Club is holding a Kevin Beattie Memorial Fundraiser on Friday 10th May with all cash raised going to The Beat Goes On, the campaign for a statue of the Blues legend.

There will be a live singer, disco, raffle and auction at the event with tickets costing £5 for adults and £1 for children available at the club, where Beattie was a regular for many years, or by phone via 07810 480622 or 07903 887853.

Led by the EADT and Ipswich Star in conjunction with BBC Radio Suffolk and TWTD, The Beat Goes On was launched on December 18th last year on what would have been Beattie’s 65th birthday.

The current target is £110,000, although it is hoped that figure will be reduced as the campaign progresses, with £49,000 already having been raised.

You can make a donation online via the Go Fund Me page or send a cheque made payable to ‘The Beat Goes On’ to Kevin Beattie Statue Appeal, EADT, Portman House, 120 Princes Street, Ipswich, IP1 1RS.

There are also collection buckets at reception at the EADT’s offices and at BBC Radio Suffolk and in the FanZone on matchdays.

This should and WILL happen. Although these are tough times for Club losing a man like The Beat will overshadow this season for me.

At least he saw the seeds of a rejuvenated Club at the start of the season, and is not witness to our impending relegation. Support this and any other venture that will allow us to show the necessary respect to such a great and important man and player.
