Help the ex-Hatter raise money for charity
Luton Town legend Brian Stein is to set out on a 54-mile London to Brighton bike ride in the name of charity this Sunday, and he needs you to donate!
Stein will be accompanied by host of former players; his brothers Mark and Edwin, Mike Newell, Kingsley Black and Mitchell Thomas, as well as Les Ferdinand and Steve Lomas.
The Stein Foundation was set up in the name of the Stein's parents, Lillian and Isaiah who Brian said without their support, his and his brother’s lives could have turned out very differently.
He said: “My father was a freedom fighter during the apartheid in the 1950s/60s in which a lot of people died, but they managed to get us to England.
“Had they not done that, I could have ended up being a fighter. They dedicated their lives to giving us a good upbringing and so my family could have an opportunity in life.”
The charity works alongside the Bedfordshire FA in helping promote sport for young children in South Africa, by providing equipment and breakfast clubs, in the hope that sport can have a positive influence on their lives.
Hatters support and contributions could make a huge difference Stein said, although he hasn’t set a target of how much he wants to raise, he just wants to try and get people to donate as much as possible.
He said: “If Luton Town fans were to donate, it would make a huge amount of difference to a lot of people’s lives.”
Any fan who wants to cheer on Stein's party at Brighton Pier are more than welcome to.
