Bodie Hodges Annual Events
Annual Sports Dinner with John Barnes
We are delighted to announce that we have just secured John Barnes for our 8th Annual Sports Dinner at Leicester Tigers on Thursday 26th March 2020. We look forward on the night to listening to many stories from his Watford and Liverpool days, the highs and lows of playing for England under Bobby Robson in Mexico and Italy, his sensational goal against Brazil at the Maracanã and also the key role he has played throughout his career in campaigning to kick racism out of football. He will be supported once again by the exceptionally talented magician Jamie Raven.
Bodie Hodges Annual Sports Dinner
In previous years we have seen sporting legends such as Frank Bruno, Martin Johnson, Jimmy Bullard, and Phil Tufnell come along and entertain us with insightful and often amusing stories about their life in sport. Held at Leicester Tigers, we are able to offer a high -quality evening in a relaxed atmosphere with a 3 course meal, auction, table games and some excellent support acts.
Bodie Hodges Golf Day
The Bodie Hodges Golf Day is one of the most prestigious charity golf days on the calendar. Held on the world famous Brabazon course at The Belfry, the only course to ever host the Ryder Cup four times, guests have exclusivity of the course for the whole day. The event incorporates breakfast rolls on arrival, free use of practice facilities, goody bag including free balls and golf day shirt, followed by a three course meal, presentation and evening entertainment .
Santa Fun Run
Launched for the first time in 2019, in the grounds of Leicester racecourse, over 300 people of all ages and abilities dressed up in their santa suits and took on either the 1km Inclusive Fun Run or the more challenging 3km route around the course. This is a fantastic family event that gets everyone in the mood for the Christmas festivities
