Benefit night in support of Michael Shields (Night)

Event type:Night
Date & Time:Friday 19 September 2008 at 00:00

Spirit Of Shankly, the Liverpool Supporters' Union, is hosting a benefit night in support of wrongly jailed Liverpool fan, Michael Shields. Michael is member number 1 in the Union, and we are glad to be able to offer any support we can to Michael and his family in their ongoing legal fight to have him freed.

Much of the money that has previously been raised for Michael has been spent, and with the fight to have him freed continuing, the benefit night and a bucket collection at the forthcoming home game against Stoke will raise much needed funds for this campaign.

The benefit night will take place on Friday 19th September, the weekend of Michael's 22nd birthday, at The Devonshire Hotel on Edge Lane. Tickets are available for the evening priced at £12, from the Hillsborough Justice Campaign Shop or by emailing

Tickets are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Brian Reade, Mirror columnist and Liverpool fan will compere the evening, with entertainment from musician Neville Skelly, and comedians John Bishop and  Mark Langley. Michael Starke, better known as Sinbad in Brookside, will also be providing entertainment on the evening.  There will be a raffle, with signed Liverpool memorabilia and other prizes to be won.

We look forward to seeing you on the evening, and helping support Michael's cause.
