Celebrities from popular TV shows like EastEnders, Love Island, and Britain’s Got Talent came together for a heartwarming charity football match. The match took place at Dorchester Town Football Club’s Avenue Stadium in Weymouth, and it proved to be a truly memorable experience for everyone involved.
Graham Butler, the event’s dedicated fundraiser, collaborated with Sellebrity Soccer to organize this philanthropic event. A remarkable 1,000 spectators gathered to witness the game and support the cause, which was to raise funds for Tommy’s, a charity dedicated to ensuring safe pregnancies and births.
The star-studded event saw the likes of model Callum Best, actor Dean Gaffney, and Love Island contestant Ouzy See grace the football field. Joining them was Britain’s Got Talent finalist Flintz, adding an extra touch of stardom to the match.
According to Mr. Butler, the celebrities’ humility and kindness left a lasting impression on everyone. The success of the match not only brought attention to Weymouth and Dorchester but also ignited discussions about hosting the event again next year.
The importance of fundraising for Tommy’s was not lost on Mr. Butler, who revealed a personal connection to the cause. He shared, “I’ve had three friends who have had miscarriages and one who has had a stillbirth, so it’s now become quite close to my heart.”
The match was a blend of local talent and celebrity glamour, with the blue team emerging victorious with a score of 10 goals to nine against the red team.
This charity football match was just one of many organized by Sellebrity Soccer across the UK, showcasing how the power of sports and celebrity involvement can make a significant impact on important causes.
