When his mother passed away, he knew it was his fundraising work that made her most proud, so he started his one-man mission to raise as much money as possible.
He has given money to Sue Ryder, the air ambulance, East Anglia Children's Hospices, Shine, CLIC Sargeant, Make a Wish Foundation and many more.
More than 500 people have at some point played in his weekly football games, and he occasionally organises special matches too.
He’s played a team against Cambridgeshire Police, had a match for veterans, all women games as well as a Man v Fat match.
