Eloise Lema Dalton Memorial Charity Football Event @ Elland Road

The Legends and Celebrity Charity Football Match has been organised to honour the memory of Eloise Lema Dalton, who lost her life in December 2009 aged just 9 months to pneumococcal meningitis and septicaemia. Her family and friends aim to raise awareness of this disease and to help in the fight to stop meningitis and related illnesses through the development of preventative vaccines.

Stars from TV, film, music, radio and sport go head to head in an All Star charity football match at LUFC, Elland Road on Saturday 9th October. The stars are raising money for two very deserving charities in memory of Eloise Lema Dalton, Meningitis UK & CashforKids
