Football fundraiser to take place at Mariners Park

A football fundraiser is coming to Mariners Park later this month.

The event, in aid of Autism Able, is taking place on Saturday, June 10.

At 4pm, Sunderland supporters will take on Newcastle United fans in an 11-a-side match on the 3G facility at the ground.

This is the fourth edition of the fundraiser, with Newcastle having won two, and Sunderland one, so far.

There will also be a bouncy castle for the children, as well as games.

After the match, there will a fundraising event in the O’Brien Lounge at Mariners Park, with live music from Spencer Johnson, Doc Smith and Autism Able Singers, and live comedy from Jack Johnson. Michael Ross will DJ through the night.

There will be raffles and games through the evening, too.
