A FOOTBALL star’s testimonial dinner is being boosted by a team of solicitors.
Tilly Bailey Irvine Solicitors is providing a box office for the sale of tickets for the testimonial dinner of Hartlepool United’s Ritchie Humphreys.
Staff at the firm’s chambers in York Road, Hartlepool, are selling tickets for the dinner on Saturday, July 16, at The Mayfair Centre, Seaton Carew.
Martin Levinson, a partner with the firm, said: “We’re happy to be able to help Ritchie. I’ve been a supporter of the club for more than 50 years, and many of my colleagues are fans also.
“Ritchie has done so much for the club in the past 10 years and this is our way of saying a big thank you.”
Ritchie said: “I have received support throughout my testimonial year from a number of people and local organisations.
“I’m grateful to Martin and TBI for the regular use of their offices for meetings and now for providing us with a central ticket office.
“The dinner will be a celebration which everyone can enjoy. We’re looking forward to a thoroughly entertaining evening with fans and friends and hope as many people as possible will come and join us.”
The dinner will be compered by Sky Sports presenter and the town’s most high-profile fan, Jeff Stelling, with entertainment as well as music from Ritchie and friends and a comedian.
Tickets are £25 per head and include a five-course meal.
