The Evening: 

Last October Francis Benali embarked on another 'impossible challenge' to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Franny pushed his mind and body to their limits as he travelled to every Premier League and Championship football club in just two weeks. He completed his man powered journey by running a marathon followed by cycling at least 75 miles each and every day covering a total distance of 1421 miles.

To celebrate this massive achievement and to help raise more money for Cancer Research, they are hosting Benalis Big Ball. Packed full of entertainment thoughout the evening, including the chance to win an awesome Ford EcoSport, kindly donated by Hendy’s and a sumptuous 3 course meal selected by Franny himself, the evening promises to be a night to remember and an opportunity to raise more funds for a much deserved charity.


Tickets are £75 per person and can be purchased separately or as a table of 10.
