Nathan said the money raised will help with travel to hospitals, days out and whatever Riley needs.

“I’m just so overwhelmed by people’s generosity and cannot thank people enough for all the kind donations for raffle prizes and just general support and guidance.

“I’m expecting 300 or more people to attend but also you are able to pay on the gate to get in.”

He thanked Darren at Timpsons for donating 81 engraved medals for the teams, as well as two sponsors.

Nathan has recruited former Lincoln City players, Tik Tok stars and medal winning Boston boxer Callum Johnson.
