Monaghans All Stars 2018

Monaghans All Stars 2018

A team of ‘Monaghans All Stars’ will once again be taking to the pitch for a charity football match at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane. This year’s match will kick off at 6:45pm on Wednesday 23rd May and will be raising funds for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice as part of Monaghans’ participation in this year’s Master Cutler’s Challenge.

The Company of Cutlers has a proud history of maintaining the standards and quality of Sheffield manufactured cutlery and steel products since 1624, and more recently has established a welcome tradition of the Master Cutler issuing an annual challenge to organisations across South Yorkshire to raise funds for a chosen charity – raising over £1.3 million for charity since 2008.

Master Cutler Ken Cooke’s chosen charity for 2018 is Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, a charity dedicated to offering care and support to children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions, both in their own homes and at their hospice in North Anston. All Bluebell Wood’s services are completely free to children and families, but it costs over £4 million a year to keep their doors open and they receive just 10% of their funding from statutory government sources. Everything else is funded by charitable donations…

So, as we seek to support Bluebell Wood, the highly anticipated football match will see a ‘Monaghans All Stars’ team, managed by Regional Director Tan Khan, face off against an ‘LSH All Comers XI’ captained by Lambert Smith Hampton’s Tom Burlaga. Playing on the Championship pitch with a full support crew of officials, mascots and stewards, we are looking forward to a competitive match!

Supporters, friends and family are warmly invited to come and join the atmosphere on match day; Admission is free, and gates will open at 18:00 with access through the Directors Lounge into the 1889 Bar ahead of kick off at 18:45.

In addition to this year’s opponents Lambert Smith Hampton, our thanks go to early supporters Clegg Construction, Scarborough Group, Southern Grove, and Henry Boot, who have already made significant contributions. With previous editions raising in excess of £5,000 for charity, we look forward to making a significant contribution to Bluebell Wood this year.
