Massive Allstar Football Event at the James Parnell Stadium

 A GALAXY of stars from the TV and music industry will take part in a celebrity football match in Nuneaton to help a school boy.

While members of the celebrity squad cannot be officially identified yet, it is set to feature faces from ITV1's TOWIE as well as from X-factor and former professional footballers.

They will line-up against a Nuneaton Boro Legends VI during the game at the home of Nuneaton Town Football Club next month.

The celebrity game is being held on Sunday, October 19 and all the funds raised will go towards helping little Jack Oldacres from Stockingford.

The St Paul's Infant School pupil suffers from a rare and painful skin condition, Netherton Syndrome, and the event is being held to help his family with his ever-growing need for special care at home.

It is through a kind-hearted contact that the Oldacres were asked if they would like a celebrity squad to take part in a match in Jack's honour. Nuneaton Town FC kindly offered to host the event at the James Parnell Stadium, and now Jack's dad, Danny, is hoping to get the whole community involved.

"We obviously want as many people as possible to come down to watch the match, it is going to be a fantastic day and the celebrity line-up is looking brilliant," Mr Oldacres.

"It is so great that the organisers want to do this to help Jack, we have concentrated a lot on raising money for research into Netherton Syndrome, but Jack is now getting bigger and stronger and looking after his skin is getting more and more difficult, and we want to make the process as comfortable as possible so we need a special room for bathing and getting changed."

He went on to add that the Boro Legends VI will be the same star team that took part in a fundraising game earlier in the month.

"We are really grateful that the players have agreed to take part in this game, we can't believe how kind people are."

There are opportunities for youngsters to be mascots for the game, and walk out with the stars, priced at £20.

Corporate sponsorship is also being sought, which will include exclusive access to the VIP area as well as promotions, as well as match kit sponsors.

Tickets for the VIP area are also available, priced at £50 per person.

There are also a limited number of stall pitches available, at £30 each.

Advance tickets to watch the game are priced at £8 for adults, with £6 concessions for under 16s, and £3 for under fives.

Tickets can be bought on the day, priced at £10 for adults, £8 for under-16s and £5 for under fives.

Anyone who would like more information about tickets, sponsorship, mascot opportunities or stall pitches should contact Mr Oldacres on 07581 160 101. 

Welcome to the Netherton Syndrome Group Website

This website has been produced because of Jack Oldacres who was born with the condition. His family want to help raise awareness of his condition, and over the last 2 years since the site has been set up we have grown our base of followers and friends to nearly 1000 facebook members. 


We have friends from America to Australia, Nuneaton to Las Vegas. The things this site has achieved are way beyond what we set out to do and the Facebook page has brought people with the condition closer together.  Please have a look around at the different pages, with information on how Jack coped in his early few month's and his daily routine - his cream and medicine he used and is using.

There are pages with all the events our Jack and his friends have been upto, from Uniparts Got Talent to the Nuneaton Carnival Walk. Everyone has been busy helping raise funds and awareness.

We have a profile page on some of our friends who are involved in helping raise awareness and living with the condition.

And without the help of some kind hearted people and companies who give up their time and money to raise much needed funds and donation's we wouldnt be here we have set up a page to thank them for their kindness.

Netherton Syndrome Awareness are not a registered charity all our efforts and events we run are for a charity called the Ichthyosis Support Group they are a collective skin condition group which covers Nethertons and other simular conditions, so we really wanted to work with them to raise as much money to help with the research and support to people in the same position as Jack.

Please have a look at the website and see some of the things that the ISG are upto.
