A hospital radio station will take on a team of former Arsenal players and celebrities at a charity football match next weekend.

The line-up of former players and celebrities include

Paul Davis, Perry Groves, Martin Hayes, Jimmy Carter, David Hillier, Phil Daniels, Tony Hadley, Ralf Little, Patrick Robinson and Tommy Walsh

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.

“All kids go free, and there is going to be plenty everyone can get involved in, including a half time penalty shoot out against the Arsenal team.”

Australian Actor Adam Garcia , who will be playing in the RNP team, said: “A friend of mine made me aware of the charity and the football match, and I thought that what better way to help in someway than to play the game I love the most.”

The match will take place at Harrow Borough FC on Sunday.

Tickets cost £5 and can be bought by visiting www.radionorthwickpark.org.

Children under 12 are free.
