Leicester Tigers will welcome former Arsenal and England footballer Paul Merson to Welford Road for a sports dinner and charity auction.

Merson won 21 international caps, two league titles, an FA Cup, a League Cup and a European Cup Winners’ Cup during a successful playing career and is now a familiar face on Soccer Saturday on Sky Sports.

He will host the event on Wednesday, March 13 in aid of the Bodie Hodges Foundation, which was set up after the tragic death of 10-month-old Bodie following a choking accident.

The foundation aims to raise £150,000 to buy a holiday home for the use of parents in the East Midlands coping with the loss of a child. It hopes the holiday home will give parents a platform from which to start rebuilding their lives. The foundation also aims to raise awareness of organ donation.
