Now all we need is for YOU to snap up your tickets, spread the word and get ready to enjoy another fun-filled day at St. Andrew’s all for the remarkable charity that is Help Harry Help Others.

HHHO founder and chair, Georgie Moseley, said: “I am delighted that #celebfooty4harry is back at St. Andrew's to give all in our community and those further afield a great, fun-filled family day right here at the heart of Birmingham. 

"It's moving that these celebs give up their time for free to come to our city to help raise money for those families affected by cancer who still have ‘hope’. Being made possible thanks to our sponsors and Birmingham City, our goal is to put on another memorable family day where kids enter for just £1, which therefore means any family on any income can attend and spend quality time together. This year will be much bigger and better!" 

Tickets for the event cost just £10 for adults and £1 for under-16s and can be purchased here.  There is also a club class package which includes post-match bar access and the chance to meet celebrities after the game at a cost of £30 for adults and £5 for under-16s. Call the St. Andrew's Ticket Office on 0844 557 1875 option 2 for more details.
