"I wasn’t sure if people would turn up but everyone seems to be excited and we’re now hoping that it can be made into an annual thing.”

Phil has also revealed what impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has been like on the Bradley Lowery Foundation.

He added: "Obviously during lockdown we were unable to get out into the community to get funds in so will this one being our first event back since Covid, it is massively important to us.

"All charities have struggled and we have been running online events but they don’t really have the same impact that we need to get the word out.
