Neil Ruddock commented “I’m always keen to do whatever I can to help raise money for this cause, especially when children are involved.”

Carole Hughes, co-founder of Anna’s Hope said ‘We really appreciate the support we have received from ‘Football vs Cancer’, they have been fantastic to work with and every penny they raised will go to funding specialist neuro-rehabilitation for children with a brain tumour.”
