Four Essex event companies are set to go head-to-head, managed by Wayne Lineker and TikTok star Big John, in a football match raising money for a mental health charity.

Lost In Paradise, run by Wickford lads Jayden Joe, Craig Lamy-Cauchi and Tom Larden, will be teaming up with Maravilosa as they face off against Step Inside and Solana in the charity match for Mind.

Chigwell-based Angelio Basta runs Step Inside which hosts events all year round in an effort to spread awareness and raise money for Mind with all the proceeds going to the mental health charity. In August, he marked a milestone £10,000 raised and had sold out two parties in seven months.

The teams will be managed by internet sensation Big John Fisher, known on TikTok for documenting his love of Chinese cuisine, and famous Spanish beach club owner Wayne Lineker.

This comes after Jayden, Craig and Tom took their events company to Ocean Beach this summer - the Ibiza club owned by former footballer Gary Lineker’s brother - marking Lost In Paradise’s international debut just a year after setting up.

Tickets for the match on Saturday, December 9, at Parkside stadium, home of Aveley Football Club, will be £10 each with half-time entertainment, huge raffles and competitions, all in aid of Mind.

Revellers aged 18 and over can also get £15 match tickets, which will give them access to the after party at Sugarhut in Brentwood from 9.30pm.
