Sparksy's Charity Ball

Feb 4, 2023
Thank you to PASOTI admin for allowing me to post this. I started working with Sir Gordon in 1988, and I have organised a charity ball for the two organisations that helped Sparksy so much, at Home Park. Here's details. It would be wonderful to have many of his fans there. I'm not taking any money for organising or hosting this, so maximum money goes to his charities. His family have given their full blessing to this event. Please spread the word:

In honour of the late, great, Argyle ambassador Gordon Sparks, Home Park Stadium and Plymouth Argyle invite you a night of delicious food and live entertainment to raise funds for charity.

The first ever Gordon Sparks Charity Ball, which takes its name from the legendary BBC Radio Devon broadcast and Argyle commentator who passed away in October, will raise funds for The Chestnut Appeal and Mustard Tree Cancer Support Centre.

The event occurs on Friday, 24 March, 2023, with doors opening from 6pm. A delicious three-course meal will be served at 7pm before a night of wonderful entertainment, curated by Gordon’s friend and broadcasting colleague Gavin Marshall, begins.

Gavin, who worked alongside Sparksy at Plymouth Sound before Gordon joined the BBC, will DJ and compere a night of live music which includes the UK’s leading Status Quo tribute act, State of Quo, and a raffle and auction in aid of cancer charities.

In keeping with the spirit of the evening, the dress code is simply ‘Green Army attire’, and guests are invited to interpret this code as they see fit – or perhaps, as Gordon himself would’ve.

Tickets are available now through the Home Park Ticket Office and, and are priced at £50 per person, with a discount applied to bookings of tables of 10.
