Frank Lampard honoured at Legends of Football

Stars from the world of sport and entertainment celebrated Frank Lampard’s induction into the Legends of Football Hall of Fame on 8 October 2018, during an incredible evening that saw over £500,000 raised for Nordoff Robbins.

The event, hosted by Legends of Football Chairman Geoff Shreeves and Hayley McQueen, honoured the career of former England and Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard, and brought together the worlds of football and music.

Frank said: “It means a lot for me to get the award personally, to be alongside the great names of the past, but I think probably the most important thing of the night is Nordoff Robbins, and the effect we can have on an evening with so many people turning up.”

Frank Lampard was presented with his award by former managers Claudio Ranieri and Sven Goran Eriksson, while The Who front man and all-time music great, Roger Daltrey, performed an exclusive live set.

Speaking of his recent visit to Nordoff Robbins, when he met beneficiary Betsy, Frank said: “As a parent myself and having a newborn daughter, three daughters now, to see Betsy and to see her resilience and her character was overwhelming – to see the other side of the work being done to help, not just her, but her mother and family, was very humbling for me. As a parent you see what it means emotionally to everybody involved and it made me realise just how special the work that Nordoff Robbins do is.”

Supported by the Premier League, Legends of Football has raised more than £7 million for Nordoff Robbins. This remarkable event has enjoyed 23 years celebrating the achievements and careers of some of the greatest footballers and managers in the beautiful game. Legends such as John Charles, Sir Stanley Matthews, Brian Clough, Sir Bobby Robson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Kenny Dalglish, Alan Shearer and Eric Cantona, to name but a few, have received this prestigious award.
