Warning Zone hosts charity evening with sporting stars

Warning Zone, a Leicester Tigers official charity for the 2017/18 season, hosted a special evening at Welford Road this week to help raise money for their work in the county.

Rugby legends Peter Wheeler and Martin Corry joined sporting stars Leicestershire County Cricket Club head coach Paul Nixon, Leicester Riders basketball team head coach Rob Paternostro, former Leicester City defender Matt Elliott, Olympic gold medallist hockey player Crista Cullen and world title fighter Rendall Munroe for the event at the home of the Tigers. BBC Radio Leicester presenter Ian Stringer hosted the evening and heard from each of the stars on the careers in and outside of sport, as well as taking questions from the audience.  

Warning Zone is a life-skills centre for children and delivers eight set-piece scenarios to educate youngsters to understand the risks and consequences of peer pressure, anti-social behaviour, grooming, cyber-bullying and much more. 

Around 200 guests enjoyed an evening of entertaining stories and a three-course meal alongside a chance to win a variety of prizes and signed sporting merchandise in the raffle.

Richard Grudgings, operations manager at Warning Zone, addressed guests saying: “We’re very grateful for the support of the Leicester Tigers, for hosting the event this evening and for their support in allowing us to be part of their home game against Wasps at the end of the season.”
