Pop star Mel C set to bring some musical spice to Luton

Singer songwriter Mel C is on her way to Luton – set to help Ryebridge Construction raise much needed funds for local charity Age Concern Luton.

Former Olympian and Sports Scientist Greg Whyte, OBE, is the charity’s patron and is helping Ryebridge Director Daniel Coyle organise a sports-themed black-tie birthday party this September.

As well as confirming a performance from Spice Girl Mel C (dubbed Sporty Spice during her years with the girl band), there will be a host of well-known sports names attending.

These include rowing champion and double Olympic gold winner James Cracknell, double Olympic silver medallist/ swimmer Jazz Carlin, BBC Breakfast’s Dan Walker and the UK Invictus Games Team Captain Mark “Dot” Perkins.

Daniel said: “To mark our birthday we wanted to have a party so what better way to do this than to support this incredible charity. We are pledging to raise at least £40,000 for Age Concern Luton and our golf day and sports themed dinner will be key to this.

“This will be an evening with a difference – with a sports star on every table, the brilliant ‘3 Minute Rockstar’ band and an auction that will include the chance to sing then and there on stage with Mel C.”

Greg Whyte, who has helped raise over £30million for Comic Relief and famously trained celebrities including David Walliams for his Channel and Thames swims and Eddie Izzard who ran a remarkable 43 marathons in 50 days, said:  “Age Concern Luton is an exceptional charity and we are delighted that Ryebridge is so keen to raise funds, which will make a real difference to the lives of older people. Lots of famous sporting faces will be there to join us at every step of the way.”

There will be two events on Friday, September 13th, 2019: a daytime Charity Golf Day at Luton Hoo and the evening black tie sporting celebrity dinner in the Walled Garden of the Luton Hoo Estate - all in aid of Age Concern Luton.

To take a table at the evening event (one sports star will sit with you) the cost is £1,000 (+VAT).
