A hospital radio station will take on a team of former Arsenal players and celebrities at a charity football match next weekend.
The event by Radio Northwick Park will raise funds to allow the small charity, now in its 42nd year, to continue to provide a patient visiting and entertainment service to patients within the hospital in Watford Road, Sudbury.
It will also raise money for the Arsenal Foundation, a charity launched to help engage young people in the community.
The day will include a fete filled with a bouncy castle and other fun activities.
Dan Cottrell, RNP fundraising officer, said: “It’s a week to go and we are incredibly excited. The team is ready and it’s truly going to be a family fun day both young and old will enjoy.
