Charity football match raises more than £3,000 for boy's life saving treatment
A charity football match raised more the £3,000 to help send a young boy to Canada for life saving treatment.
The match took place at Haringey Borough Football Ground, in White Hart Lane on Friday evening in aid of nine-year-old Keir Thompson who has Duchene Muscular Dystrophy.
More than 400 people watched the game featuring former Arsenal stars and celebrities with all money raised going towards sending Keir to Canada to get life saving stem cell treatment.
Keir’s mum Elaine, said: “It was an amazing event and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
“It was a great family event and it’s fantastic we’ve raised so much for the cause.”
Organisers are still counting up all the money from the event but already more than £3,000 has been counted and the total could go up even more.
The match is just first of more events to come to raise money, with a pampering event to come in November.
