AFC Bournemouth legend Steve Fletcher and Sam Matthews visited Twynham Comprehensive School last week to help raise money for the Typhoon Haiyan disaster in the Philippines.

The duo visited the school, based in Christchurch, to sign items for the school to later auction to rebuild the lives of those affected by the disaster, which forced over 4 million people from their homes.

Fletcher also led a question and answer session with Matthews, as the two entertained pupils with tales about life as a footballer at AFC Bournemouth.

Staff at the school also took part in a ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ eating challenge, and the whole school contributed to a spare change appeal, with the two activities raising, as it stands, an additional £115 on top of the money raised via the auction.
