Ex-Saints are a charitable organisation who regularly play matches and attend functions in order to support their favoured good causes. This year they are raising money and awareness for the following-
Peter Osgood Trust – helping disabled and under-privileged children enjoy football
Kevin Moore – Saints stalwart who suffers from fronotemporal dementia (an early form of dementia).
The Cedar School – local school helping physically disabled children.
"Maybe Dennis and Brian can show us how a tackle should be done!" – LSSC chairman Mick Strickland
Following on from LSSC’s fantastic day at Lords in June when we raised around £2,500 for these causes, the Ex-Saints night promises to be a memorable occasion which will be split into two parts-
Forum – A question and answer session where members will get the opportunity to test the player’s memories!
Informal ‘session’ – Meet the players in a more relaxed mood!
There will be a sumptuous buffet on offer and a well stocked bar (now there’s a surprise).
Oh, and why not make a day of it as earlier in the day, the London Saints Open takes place at Trent Park Golf Club in North London – full details on previous article.
