Over £700 raised by student for local charity
8 September 2017
Ben Knapman, who is a year 11 student, has raised an outstanding £725.56 for the Bradley Lowery Foundation. Totaling in 13 miles, he walked from St Annes to Highbury Stadium on Saturday 22nd July before the pre-season win over Bolton Wanderers. During half-time Ben walked around with a collection bucket and the generousity and support of the Fleetwood and Bolton fans and the local people was truly amazing.
Ben Knapman said "As someone was also has neuroblastoma Bradley touched my heart so I wanted to give something back". Ben has received a certificate to recognise and thank him for his fundraising efforts.
The foundation was set up while Bradley was still receiving treatment for neuroblastoma and donations were used to pay towards it. The funds will now go to other children who need it to help pay for their treatment.
