We are pleased to announce a special evening to celebrate the life of our dear friend and FWA vice chair Vikki Orvice, and would like to invite you to buy tickets for this star-studded event, on Wednesday November 13th 2019 at Lord’s Cricket Ground in the Nursery Pavilion.
Vikki sadly died of cancer in February after several years of treatment. We plan to spend the evening remembering the highlights of Vikki’s working life as a trailblazing sports journalist, while raising vital funds for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, via auction and raffle. Many fantastic prizes have already been pledged.
Vikki was the first female vice-chair of the FWA and a significant influence on our organisation over many years. She was a driving force for the changing face of the association in terms of inclusivity and we owe much to her pioneering spirit. This is your chance to pay your respects to Vikki while enjoying an evening of laughter and entertainment amongst colleagues and sportspeople.
Please click on the link below to buy your tickets for a three course meal with wine. You have the option to buy tickets on an individual basis or a table of 10. Sponsorship and corporate packages are also on sale directly via the link.
Join us to celebrate the life of our beloved Vikki Orvice, a founding member of Women in Football, Sun sportswriter and vice-chair of the Football Writers’ Association. Vikki was a trailblazer for female journalists and a great friend to all who knew her. Every penny raised will support The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

We very much hope to see you at Lord’s on November 13th.
