Southampton Football Club and Saints Foundation are pleased to announce that £3,992.64 was raised for Teenage Cancer Trust, on behalf of second-year scholar Ben Cull, from a collection ahead of last month’s Arsenal game.

Ben is currently undergoing treatment for Ewings Sarcoma, which is a rare form of bone cancer, and is receiving the majority of his treatment at the trust’s unit, at Southampton General Hospital.

Ben’s family and friends organised a bucket collection at the FA Cup clash with Arsenal, with supporters digging deep to support a great cause.

Saints Foundation matched all donations, meaning nearly £4,000 was raised.

The Teenage Cancer Trust unit in Southampton opened in 2013 and is designed to feel more like home than a hospital ward. They make sure that the environment is as positive and unintimidating as possible.
