Nottingham Forest striker Billy Sharp set to stage event in memory of new-born son
NOTTINGHAM Forest striker Billy Sharp is to hold a charity dinner in memory of his baby son.
Sharp established the Luey Jacob Sharp Foundation with his partner, Jade Fair, in memory of their son Luey, who died last year aged two days old.
The foundation wants to help other families affected by gastroschisis, a condition which means babies are born with their intestines outside their body.
The dinner, at the Keepmoat Stadium, in Doncaster, on November 14, will help the foundation continue its work.
