Charity is the real winner as stars get together for football match!


Emmerdale and Hollyoaks legends James Hooton (Sam Dingle) and David Kennedy (Dirk Savage) may have been on the winning side, but it was the charity ‘Andy’s man club’ that was the true victor as Supporting Charities FC battled it out against Battling Fat Lads FC last weekend in Bradford!

Along with our very own Ash Stevenson, the soap legends gave up their time, as they often do, to help raise money for charity! Andy’s man club is a society for Male Suicide Prevention and It’s Okay to talk and is an organisation very close to the team that the stars lined up for. All 3 of Ash, David and James are ambassadors for Supporting Charities FC and have taken part in a number of fundraisers for various different charities across the country. The stars had a great game, and David even managed to get on the scoresheet! After the game both turned out to the pub to do the raffle and take photos with the people who came to watch!

We are very proud to work alongside people who are willing to give back and David and James are prime examples. If you would like either of them to appear at your next charity event as a guest speaker, or host – please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
