Star-studded charity basketball match at Eastleigh's Fleming Park
11:10am Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
£11,000 by attending an exciting starstudded charity basketball match in Hampshire.
A sell-out crowd packed into Fleming Park in Eastleigh to watch a host of top players take to the court.
They saw a number of current and former national and international players including former Solent Stars like former GB international guard Paul Philp as well as Harlem Globetrotter Alan Cunningham.
They lost a warm-up match against former British Basketball League players featuring England internationals including Ronnie Baker, Peter Scantlebury MBE and Steve Nelson together with GB international Junior Williams.
Former Saints players Jo Tessem and Francis Benali also took part in the event which also featured two top current British Basketball league teams London Lions and Sheffield Sharks.
It was all part of an event organised by Bev Guymon – pictured front centre sitting on Alan Cunningham’s knee – in aid of a liver and pancreatic research charity set up by Bev’s surgeon Mo Abu Hilal.
A cheque will be presented at the charity annual ball at the De Vere hotel on the evening of October 12. Tickets for that event can be purchased from Linda Beadle on 0777 333 8629.
