REMF will host their charity match this evening.
The Robert Eaton Memorial Fund’s annual charity football match will take place at Lewes’s Dripping Pan this evening, kick-off 7.45pm.
REMF is a charity run by Brighton & Hove Albion supporters in honour of Robert Eaton, an Albion fan who lost his life in the 2001 World Trade Centre attacks.
Over 15 years the charity has raised vast sums of money to help children across the globe participate in sport, raising funds for impoverished areas in Sussex, Africa and America.
REMF’s manager Brett Mendoza told seagulls.co.uk, “Our annual match is our biggest event which gains us the most publicity, but the main point of the charity is to help others who don’t enjoy the luxuries we have.
“We are lucky to live in what I believe to be the best city in the UK. We watch Albion play in an amazing stadium every other week and we have facilities everywhere for us to enjoy sport.
“Sadly not everyone in the world is as fortunate, and having played football since I was a child, I know how much that means at that age, so we aim to help give as many children around the world access to sport.
“We have achieved some great things over the years but we are never finished. We hope all the Albion fans can get behind us and donate as every penny can make a huge difference in improving someone else’s life.”
The match will see Albion fans pitted against old rivals from Crystal Palace, with former players Paul Rogers and Peter Ward already set to line up for the Albion team.
Tickets are available on the gate at £5 for adults, while under-16s are free but must be accompanied by an adult.
