Volunteers from Radio Northwick Park will be putting their best foot forward

Volunteers from a hospital radio station are teaming up with former Arsenal players and celebrities to take part in a charity football match.

The team from Radio Northwick Park will play the friendly match against the former professional players at Harrow Borough Football Club on August 18.

The charity, which broadcasts to patients in Northwick Park Hospital in Watford Road, Sudbury, will split the money raised between itself and the Arsenal Foundation, a charity launched to help engage young people in the community.

Fundraiser Dan Cottrell said: “We are incredibly excited to be teaming up with Arsenal to host such a fabulous day. We welcome families and fans in the area to come and enjoy the variety of activities during the day.”

The names of the ex-football players and celebrities will be confirmed at a later date.
