Palace Aid: Squads are confirmed!

Palace for Life Patrons Andrew Johnson and Doc Brown reveal their squads ahead of Palace Aid.

Whilst Palace Aid bragging rights are up for grabs, the squads are really coming together to raise awareness of the work of Palace for Life in south London, asking supporters to donate crucial funds to help the Foundation support even more young people in the community.

The details: Saturday 3 June 2023, Selhurst Park, 12:45 kick off.

Please, if you can, do donate to support the work of Palace for Life, here.
