Stars of snow and ice are guests at Hospice in the Weald’s sporting dinner

Among the famous names will be Lizzy Yarnold, whose twin  gold medals in skeleton racing made her the most successful UK athlete in Winter Olympics history.

Lizzy, from West Kingsdown near Sevenoaks, said: “I am excited to be attending the Sporting Dinner in aid of Hospice in the Weald, which is such an important charity within our local community.

“I hope that people will join me for an evening of fantastic entertainment, including a Q&A which I am participating in. This will be a memorable event.”

She will be joined by Millie Knight, who won two silvers and a bronze at the Paralympics in Pyeongchang this year, and is also Britain’s first world para ski champion.

The partially-sighted skier from Canterbury won gold in the downhill event at the world championships in Tarvisio last year with her partner Brett Wild.

TV commentator and former tennis player Andrew Castle will field questions from the diners, while former England cricket captain Chris Cowdrey will host the black-tie gala.

Tickets cost £100 each or £1,000 for a table of ten.
