Prenton Park pitch - 21st October 2018
Reality TV stars including The Only Way is Essex's James Argent and 2018 Love Island participant Frankie Foster will be gracing the Prenton Park pitch, with all moneys raised being donated to Tranmere Rovers In The Community and James Bulger Memorial Trust.
Alongside Argent and Foster, other household names lacing up their boosts will be EastEnders duo Dean Gafney and Jake Wood, GeordieShore's Sam Gowland, TV personality Calum Best and many more. Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans will also be in attendance, taking his seat in the dugout as a manager for one of the celebrity team's.
The game will be played in a friendly and competitive way but with real importance as all funds raised will go towards two charitable organisations who work tirelessly within the local community each and every day. This year marks 25 years since James sadly passed away, and in his memory, his mother Denise decided to launch a charity to benefit and support young people who are disadvantaged by reason of having become a part of bereavement, a victim of crime, hatred or bullying.
Meanwhile, Tranmere Rovers In The Community works with thousands of people each year, with the four core themes of their work being in health, education, social inclusion, and sports participation.

The Magic Moments Children’s Charity was set up in 1998 by Alick Smith, the then Chairman of the UK’s largest independent estate agency Spicerhaart, and his wife Val.
The charity was formally known as the Fantasy Charity Fund, raising in excess of £1m over the years and is dedicated to helping children from the supported hospices and their families on annual trips to Disneyland Paris.
Any additional funds in the charity pot have historically been used to provide vital equipment, electrical appliances, hoists to lift the children in and out of their beds or baths, and toys for the Children’s Hospices.
