Lewis, who participated in the first Soccer Aid match in 2006, tells an anecdote about McCulley and tells ITV’s flagship breakfast show: It was everywhere covered with Union Jack buntings and the British flag, and she took it out and bought it to decorate her room.
“So she’s with us. She’s with us again this year.”
Called the world’s largest celebrity soccer match, Soccer Aid is raising money for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
Since its inception in 2006, it has raised over £ 60m for humanitarian organizations that help children around the world.
