Vauxhall host Barrie Wells Trust children at England match

Vauxhall hosted children from the Barrie Wells Trust as part of their Box4Kids initative when they were invited to watch England face Australia at The Stadium of Light.

Vauxhall welcomed fourchildren and a guest from the Great North Children’s Hospital to use their box at Sunderland AFC’s stadium as England played their penulatate friendly ahead of this summer’s European Championships.

The children were joined in the box by former England and Sunderland defender Terry Butcher as they enjoyed the match in comfort.

Cheryl Stibbs, Vauxhall Sponsorship Marketing Manager, said: “It was an honour to be able to welcome the children to the Stadium of Light, they are such an inspiration and it was an easy decision to donate the box to them.

“We hope they enjoyed the match and some of the best seats in the stadium.”

The Box4Kids initiatve opperates across 60 venues throughout the UK, which sees box holders donate their venue’s boxes.

Barrie Wells, Chairman of the Barrie Wells Trust said: “I’d like to thank Vauxhall for their incredible hospitality as it is through their genorsity that Box4Kids is possible. The children were overcome with excitement when they were told they were going to watch England.

“It is a day that they will remember, the whole experience was fantastic.”

England’s Roy Hodgson play their final warm-up game against Portugal at Wembley on June 2. Vauxhall will be hosting nine-year-old Terry Howe through the Barrie Wells Trust on the day.

Terry who is currently receiving treatment at The Royal Marsden Hospital for T-Cell Lymphoid Leukaemia will be an England flag bearer for the match.
