Eddie is the former manager of Premier League football club AFC Bournemouth and is widely regarded as one of the country’s leading football managers. He is a fabulous supporter having arranged stadium tours for Julia’s House children, donated auction prizes for our fundraising events and featured in our promotional videos. He also took part in a Q&A dinner event which raised £25,000 in October 2018.
Eddie said: “I remember my son, Harry, having a health scare when he was very young and when you go through an experience like that, you get even more of an appreciation for a charity like Julia’s House and others that care for sick children. At this stage in my life, I have a greater understanding of what it means and of the responsibility of being a parent. That is why I decided to back Julia’s House. I am privileged and proud to become a Patron of this fantastic charity.”
