John Terry Fires Back at Reporter Who Reports Him Charging Fans £100 Per AutographBreaks
Former Chelsea captain John Terry has responded to reports that claimed he was charging fans £100 per autograph and £500 for dining with him during his one-man tour. He clarified that all the proceeds from these events are going to his charity foundation, the John Terry 26 Foundation, which supports various charitable causes.
In a statement on Instagram, Terry explained that the primary purpose of his tour and events is to raise money for his foundation. He highlighted that he has been involved with different charities for the past 22 years, especially during his tenure as Chelsea captain, where he encountered many terminally ill and sick children. This experience inspired him to establish his own foundation about seven or eight months ago, focusing on hosting events like gala dinners and golf tournaments throughout the year to raise funds for various causes close to his heart.
Terry also mentioned that he didn’t initially publicize this aspect of his tour because he believed it wasn’t necessary, but since the issue has been raised, he wanted to clarify that every penny from these events goes directly to his charity foundation.
Furthermore, he expressed his frustration with the press for spreading inaccurate information and emphasized his commitment to charitable work, including supporting the annual charity day for BGC in London.
John Terry’s response serves to clear up any misconceptions regarding the pricing of his tour events and underscores his dedication to making a positive impact through charitable endeavors.
