West End Charity Football Club started in 2019 comprising of players who work in London’s theatre industry, celebrities, and some ex-professional footballers, raising money for Acting for Others, a fundraising organisation for a network of 14 UK theatrical and welfare charities supporting all theatre workers.

You can sponsor the event by donating at their Just Giving page.

Manager of the West End Charity Football Club, Jonny Phillips, said in a statement: “As a charity football club, we’ve been raising money for Acting for Others playing football matches up and down the country for around 4 years now. We’ve wanted to do something bigger and find new ways outside of the matches to raise even more money, this is the first of many challenges we will be setting ourselves across the next few years. Acting for Others helped me and my family in the past when we hit a hard patch, and I know how much incredible work they do supporting others in the performing industry. This is our chance to give back and help raise as much as we can for those that need it.”
