Albion Foundation Director Rob Lake says he is “delighted and honoured” to be able to help celebrate two Baggies heroes at The Hawthorns on Saturday as the charity prepares to host ‘Clash of the Legends: Brunty v Mozza’.
The Foundation was selected by Chris Brunt and James Morrison as the beneficiary of their special game, with Saturday serving as both a celebration of their careers with the club and a fundraiser for the charity.
And the head of the Foundation’s staff admits he is “eternally grateful” to the pair for choosing the charity.
Lake said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been given the opportunity to help celebrate the outstanding career achievements of two Baggies legends.
“All profits from the game will be donated to The Albion Foundation to help supplement the work we do within our local community, and the support of this fixture will assist us in continuing with our invaluable service. We are eternally grateful to Chris and James, and I would like to thank them for choosing the Foundation as the beneficiary of their special day.
“Brunty and Mozza stand on their own in terms of modern-era legends of this football club. To have served the club with such loyalty for more than a decade is a unique achievement in this day and age, and testament to them as people as well as footballers. They have always been great servants of the Foundation and it is now our opportunity to celebrate their achievements for Albion.
“It really would be special and appropriate to provide them with the thank you they deserve – and I know your attendance – alongside thousands of other likeminded fans, will mean the world to them both.
“We appreciate times are tough, but we hope you can find the funds to show your appreciation for Chris and James and be assured that every penny made from the game goes to The Albion Foundation to continue our work making a difference in the local community.”
