Robbie Fowler, John Barnes and Steve McManaman arrived on South African shores this week to help raise money in celebration of Mandela’s life and legacy.
 
 
Part of the proceeds from the dinner will be going towards several charitable causes, including, but not limited to, ‘The House Group’, a charity that supports young girls who are survivors of human trafficking.
 
 
There will also be a coaching clinic with 250 underprivileged children hosted at the Metrostars Football Development Centre in Benoni, as the City of Liverpool and Liverpool FC look to give back to a country that so many of their supporters call home.
 
Meanwhile, the city also plans to honour ‘Madiba’ by placing a permanent memorial on the lake island of Toxteth Park in Liverpool. It is due to be launched in June 2018, and will be known as Mandela Island. The bridge linking the island with the park will be called Freedom Bridge.  
 
The gala dinner will take place tonight in Johannesburg, for more information visit: https://thelegendsexperience.co.za/
