TWO giants of the music scene are taking on the giants of sport as we prepare for the Sheffield Wednesday Charity Cup contest.
Sheffield music legends Jon McClure, the lead singer of Reverend and the Makers, and Jon Windle, former lead singer of Little Man Tate, have both signed up to take part in the unique sporting challenge that will raise money for St Luke's and the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme.
Kicking off on Saturday April 14, two Sheffield Wednesday teams – both home and away sides - will battle it out to win the prestigious Charity Cup.
And to take part and play for Wednesday – alongside the two Jons and some special sporting guest stars - all you have to do is raise a minimum of £500 per person.
In return, players get full use of the SWFC player’s facilities and changing rooms, receive a SWFC kit, and a meal after the game for themselves and a guest in the 1867 suite as well as a souvenir team photograph and player’s medal.
“This is an unforgettable occasion for any real Owls fan and there are still a small number of spaces available,” said our Corporate Fundraising Manager Jack Kidder.
“It’s a truly unique opportunity to step out onto the famous Wednesday pitch and be part of a memorable sporting occasion.”
