An England football legend has helped raise more than £2,000 for St John’s Hospice.
Stuart Pearce was guest of honour at a fund-raising Sportsman’s Dinner at the Trimpell Club, Morecambe, on Saturday.
Pearce, who won 78 caps for England and played in both the famous 1990 World Cup semi-final and 1996 European Championship semi-final losses to Germany, gave an after-dinner speech and answered questions from the audience.
He also posed for photos and signed autographs.
Nicknamed ‘Psycho’, Pearce was renowned as a hard man defender during his professional football career, with a devasatating left foot shot.
He later became manager of England Under 21s and the Great Britain 2012 Olympic team.
St John’s Hospice in Lancaster provides care for people with life-limiting illnesses.
