Millwall fan Tony Munday was good to his word for wearing a West Ham full kit and dying his hair Claret and Blue and running to the London Stadium when he made the Crossed Hammers sign to raise over £25,000 for the Isla Caton fighting fund.
The rival supporter was due to run the Brentwood half marathon to raise money for little Isla until the race was cancelled because of snow. Instead Tony’s ran from Millwall’s new den to the Boleyn Ground before running on to the London Stadium on Saturday when the Hammers faced Southampton.
Tony’s original plan was to raise just £500 when he heard of West Ham fan’s Isla’s plight but he agreed to wear a West Ham shirt if pledges ever reached £1,000, he then set a target of £2,000 to wear the full West Ham kit, and agreed to do crossed Hammers sign on the race finish line if he ever got to £3,500, his final target was £7,000 to dye his hair Claret and Blue. In the, end Tony smashed all those targets raising £21,259 plus over £4,000 in gift aid.
Well done Tony, it really does go to prove that Cancer has no colours!
