Hosted at the brand new 5-star Middle Eight Hotel, One Family's UEFA Euro Finals screening was joined by sports journalist, Premier League commentator and One Family ambassador, Manish Bhasin, who engaged our guests in intimate conversation and exciting commentary of the match.
After a successful tournament for this exceptional England team, a hard earned draw led to extra- time and eventually penalties, where England once again suffered a heartbreaking defeat. The atmosphere at the event was electric, with people on the edge of their seats as retired Liverpool and England player John Barnes offered commentary, insight and analysis on the game. In true sportsmanship fashion, John rallied to pick up everyone's spirits by delivering an exclusive performance of his iconic World in Motion rap.
One Family ambassador, Manish Bhasin, said: “Although we didn't get the result we hoped for in the match, our generous supporters helped us raise £10,000 via an exclusive auction, whereby items and experiences were donated by many, including the legendary John Barnes. So although we lost the game, the evening was still a success in many ways”.
