Wonderful evening with Glenn Hoddle - Feb 8th

Glenn Hoddle, former Spurs and England legend, entertained the crowd at Balls Brothers as Under The Posts and The Lillywhite Foundation enjoyed another great event. 

Former Spurs legend John Pratt was also there to lend voice to Glenn's anecdotes and insights. Expertly hosted as ever by our very own Paul Coyte and glued together by former England Cricket Captain Chris Cowdrey the evening was a wonderful success with over £3,000 raised for the Lillywhite Foundation. A signed Harry Kane shirt was just one of the great items that generous guests bought in the auction. We ran out of time and so fingers crossed Glenn will come back and do "part 2" in the future. 

Our gratitude and thanks go to Glenn, John, Paul Coyte, Chris Cowdrey & Tony and the team at Under The Posts and of course to all the guests for helping to make the event such a success.
