Bradford based Five Nine Agency staged their festive lunch at the Great Victoria Hotel in Bradford.

The agency invited a large number of former players and local sports stars to the event titled 'Tales from the Dressing Room'.

Over 150 fans attended the lunch, which featured some lively Q&A's with the likes of Peter Jackson, Paul Jewell, Jamie Lawrence, John Dreyer, Darren Tetley, Alan Gilliver (who features on our banners) and Arnie Sidebottom. 

Co-founder of Five Nine Agency, James Mason, wrote in the dinner programme

"Today's chosen charity is the Sporting Memories Foundation, who I first came in contact with during my time at Bradford City. In their own words they aim to tackle Dementia, Depression and Loneliness through the Power of Sport. I for one, fully understand just how powerful this message is.....I remember my Mum a few years ago coming alive at a Bradford City game when she was overcome with joy, laughter and song all because of sport. 

The event included a fundraising raffle and auction. The funds raised will be put towards starting a weekly sporting memories club in Bradford. 

Our sincere thanks to all who supported the event
