Neil Warnock is donating his Manager of the Month trophy to a lucky fan to raise money for Butterwick Hospice.

It's a record 11th award of the Boro boss and he has gifted the trophy to the Stockton-based hospice.

The club is holding an online raffle on behalf of the hospice.

£3,500

Amount raised within the first 12 hours of the raffle being launched

This figure is enough to provide one week of daycare support for people living with a complex and progressive palliative diagnosis. It's hoped the club will reach a target of £5,000.

In what are difficult times for everyone, I’ve been so pleased with the response I’ve had from all the fans. I want to dedicate this award to them. I wanted to show my appreciation by offering the award to our fans and at the same time, helping raise funds for a fantastic Teesside charity in Butterwick Hospice.
