As well as prominent members of Premiership rugby teams, other locally based sporting celebrities will be in attendance on the night.

Gracie Matthews will speak about her life since the accident, which will be showcased by a unique short video hitherto unseen and a definitive film for anyone suffering disability.

The one and only Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet will perform his classic songs - Tony will be supported by Electric Blues singer/guitarist Jon Collins.
