Tickets Still Available for Gainsborough Labour Club Beattie Statue Fundraiser
Thursday, 9th May 2019 15:09

There are still a few tickets available for Friday's Kevin Beattie Memorial Fundraiser at Gainsborough Labour Club which is being hosted by Mark Murphy 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.

Among the large number of items up for auction are a framed white Town shirt signed by Beattie Russell Osman, Mick Mills and John Wark, and a home strip worn and signed by Richard Naylor against Bolton Wanderers during the 1998/99 season.

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.
