WORLD Cup legend Sir Geoff Hurst spoke at a Galpharm Stadium dinner last night.

The hat-trick hero of England's finest hour - winning the 1966 World Cup Final - talked about that famous afternoon and told tales from his playing days.

Then he auctioned sporting memorabilia - including a box at Royal Ascot - and Red Arrow goodies. The dinner was held to raise cash for the Dickie Bird Foundation, which was set up by the famous cricket umpire to help disadvantaged children and get them playing sports.

Dickie, from Barnsley, was also at the dinner, along with England and Yorkshire cricketer Chris Silverwood.

The night was hosted by Huddersfield event management firm JMS Services and design and exhibition firm the Diji Group.

JMS director Jonathan Scott said: "It was a brilliant night and the money raised is for a wonderful cause as well.

"It was great to see a legend like Geoff. I have to say thanks to everyone who gave time and money to make this a success."
