FRENCH footballer Djibril Cisse could front a fun day to boost the battle against plans for a giant incinerator at Ince Marshes.
Jane Blair, fundraising co-ordinator for Residents Against Incineration (RAIN), said she had written to the Liverpool star to see if he could support the group at an event in Helsby.
Cisse, who took the title Lord of the Manor of Frodsham after paying £2m for Ridge Manor House on Manley Road, is currently preparing for the World Cup.
If he accepts, he could appear as a World Cup hero, with the event scheduled for Sunday July 16 - one week after the final.
The fun day will help raise some of the estimated £15,000 in legal costs needed to fight Peel Environmental's application at a public inquiry triggered last week by Chester city councillors' objection to the scheme.
It will start with a sponsored walk through the village to the Robin Hood Hotel and activities will then take place on the parish field.
Entrance to the event will be free, but there will be charges for activities.
More than 2,000 people have objected to Peel's plan.
The incinerator would see 600,000 tonnes of household waste - much of it from Manchester and Merseyside - burned.
Peel insists the incinerator would be safe, and a wider waste park would re-process recycled materials, while creating an estimated 1,200 jobs.
