More than 500 tickets have been sold for a Philippines typhoon fundraiser hosted by boxer Amir Khan.

At the event in Bradford tonight, there will also be a charity auction for memorabilia from footballing greats including Ronaldo and Messi and boxing memorabilia belonging to Khan himself.

"We've been overwhelmed by the support from the local community in Bradford already and we're hoping to raise thousands for the Typhoon Haiyan Appeal this Sunday.

"The typhoon caused mass destruction across the Philippines and I'm honoured to be working with Islamic Relief to organise this dinner for such a good cause."
