help ensure survival of two barn owls
The former Spurs star, England international and England manager appeared in An Evening With Glenn Hoddle, A World Cup Sportsman’s Dinner, on 31 May.
The sold-out event raised funds for Dorset Cancer Care Foundation (DCCF), a local charity which gives financial assistance to Dorset residents with cancer.
Hoddle, 60, entertained the audience with tales from his career with Tottenham Hotspur, the club he joined as a junior at 12 and where he was offered an apprenticeship aged 17.
From 1979-80 the then 22-year-old midfielder scored 19 goals in 41 league appearances for Spurs and won the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
Hoddle also shared anecdotes from his prolific international career – as well as his unwitting foray into the world of pop music with the single Diamond Lights in 1987 – and his sometimes tumultuous years as a manager with Swindon Town, Chelsea, Southampton and England.
Eve Went, one of the founders of Dorset Cancer Care Foundation (DCCF), said, “Glenn is a fascinating and charming man and was genuinely interested in the work we do to help local people cope with the financial pressures cancer can bring.
“We are extremely thankful to him, the ‘An Evening with…team, JLD Bespoke Events and 1st Waste Management Consultants for supporting DCCF through this wonderful event.”
