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.

Reflections on Relegation by TimS
I was walking through Kesgrave last Saturday afternoon around 4.35pm with my mind wandering. I could distinctly remember making the same walk from a local Tesco through Grange Farm back in the spring of 2002.
The History Boys by Tristan90
My first season following Town was 2002/03, just after relegation from the Premier League and in full of optimism for a quick return.
It's Not R*********, It's the Promise of an Adventure by BaltachaFanClub
Let’s be totally honest, we’ve not had a good year. I know that’s an understatement and come August we begin in a league we haven’t played in for the majority of most readers’ lives.
