A set of celebrities will take on a super-fit team of the armed forces at the end of Gibraltar's inaugural International Boat Show in order to raise money for Help for Heroes.
PartyGaming are sponsoring the event, which will take place in the 5,000-seater Victoria stadium. Royle Family and Two Pints favourite Ralf Little, TV personality Jeff Brazier, Hollyoaks’ Jamie Lomas, Big Brother’s Ziggy and clubland DJ Alex P are sure to provide a crowd-pleasing opposition to Petty Officer Physical Training Instructor Dave Wilson’s Forces side.
Martin Weigold, Group Finance Director of match sponsors PartyGaming, comments, ‘After four days of all eyes on the waterfront, it’ll be great to get our feet on dry ground and provide a real spectacle for exhibitors, organizers, the residents of Gibraltar and visitors from Spain and beyond. The Match will serve to celebrate what we’re sure will have been an enormously successful first Boat Show for the Rock. It’s so admirable to see stars from the world of TV, music and sport give up their precious Easter break to raise money for Help for Heroes and we intend to pack out the Stadium to raise as much as possible for this deserving cause.’
