Beattie Statue Fundraiser at Gainsborough Labour Club
Tuesday, 23rd Apr 2019 11:31

Gainsborough Labour Club is holding a Kevin Beattie Memorial Fundraiser hosted by Mark Murphy 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.

I cannot accept that the club could not pay the original £110k, let alone the outstanding balance left. This is a legend we are talking about. Embarrassing when you consider we gave Chopra £500k to pay off his debts and many many awful players multiple thousands to underperform.
