Magid said: 'Myself and Jon have been vocal about the topics on social media, Jon will be talking more about his own personal experiences with things like mental health.

'I think talking about mental health will hopefully help break the stigma, especially amongst men. 

'With so much happening around Sheffield I thought it would be great to host an evening speaking with a Sheffield legend who has already contributed to Sheffield in so many ways.

'I guarantee it will be lively, fun and engaging.'

All money raised on the night will go towards the Lord Mayor's Charity Fund which, at the end of Magid's term, will go towards Sheffield Flourish, a mental health charity, Unity Gym Project, a charity which supports young people, and Sheffield Women's Counselling and Therapy Service, which helps women who have suffered from abuse or trauma. 

In total, Magid is hoping to break the national record for Lord Mayor's Charity Funds and raise £100,000 by May 2019.
