With the amount of money that Premier League clubs earn - I mean, if a club earns £50million from TV rights and sponsorship in a season - surely each club could donate £1m to the lower divisions. It saddens me that when I visit Mum at Bury, the stadium looks the same as it did almost 20 years ago. Even buying toilet rolls and a tin of paint is difficult. I wish a lot more things could be done to help the smaller clubs.

Home from home, eh Pip! Laughing

People are different Griff, nice sentiments, but i know Pip does a lot of work for hospitals, didn't the raise something ridicilous like £20m for the hospice where their daughter is treated? granted, i appreciate your direction ( football and giving back ) but my priority would be my family and the care for them, not the leeches in football.

I meant the comparison between Bury and Everton - the stadium and no money for bog roll. Home from home! Very Happy

that must be an old article ,in the morning paper( daily mirror) julie & phil neville have a big piece on raising £20 million for the royal manchester childrens hospital,whilst their daughter isabella now aged six,was diagnosed with cerebal palsy at just 18 months old,the nevilles were told isabella would never walk again,so to take her mind off her daughters news julie neville set out her target to raise the money by doing charity nights to keep her buisy as each night her daughter was in hospital for over two months the grief of leaving there daughter on her own was too much to bare as their wasn't any beds or rooms for the nevilles to stay in,now the hospital has pull down beds in each room, phil nevilles older child harvey aged eight helps his little sister isabella every night at tea time by carrying her plate to the table,isabela is managing to get by but its a long process.

His missus is a proper person ( note no wag mention)

http://www.mirror.co.uk/celebs/news/2010/0...15875-22068454/

For most footballers' wives, £20million is their husband's latest transfer fee - or the divorce payout they can expect if he's caught playing away.

But for Julie Neville, wife of Everton captain and former England ace Phil, the cash sum was a target.

She set about raising that amount for a children's hospital after her daughter was born with a devastating disability. Isabella, now six, was born three months prematurely and spent weeks fighting for life in a special care unit.

And when she was just 18 months old her parents were told that she had cerebral palsy and may never walk.

Julie and Phil, who also have an eightyear-old son, Harvey, were still coming to terms with the news when Julie agreed to fundraise for the new Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.

Julie says: "We were so heartbroken by Isabella's diagnosis that we only told close family and friends - we knew we wouldn't be able to talk to strangers about it without breaking down. Then I got a call from Sarah Naysmith. She was working to set up a charity to raise funds for the new children's hospital and wanted us to be patrons."

The charity aimed to raise £20million in three years for pull-down parents' beds next to each child's bed, a family accommodation block and high-tech equipment.

"At first I thought £20million was a crazy figure - no regional charity had raised anywhere near that amount," says Julie. "But I couldn't get it out of my mind.

"I had never recovered from the guilt of leaving tiny, helpless, newborn Isabella in her hospital incubator each night while I went home.

"For two months I had to leave my sick baby each night and go home for a broken night's sleep where every time I woke up I'd reach for her cot, only to realise she wasn't there. She was 20 miles away. If this hospital with its accommodation blocks had been open then, I'd never have had to leave her."

Julie is also keen to reassure parents that having a disabled child isn'the couldn't end of the world. She says: "I'm a handson mum. I don't have a nanny as I want to do everything for them myself.

"Despite Isabella's physical disability she is amazingly bright and goes to the same school as her brother. Then after school we have extra activities.

"Harvey is football mad, so he trains three nights every week.

"I am determined that Isabella is never going to miss out on all the things other children do just because she has cerebral palsy, so she and Harvey have skiing lessons.

"They have both just started horseriding as well, which Issy loves - she laughs all the time she is on the pony and it is brilliant for helping her with her balance."

Despite the doctors' predictions, Isabella has defied the odds.

She wears splints on her legs to straighten them and sometimes needs a walking frame for support, but she has been walking since she was two and a half.

Julie adds: "Harvey is amazing with Isabella. He comes to every single hospital appointment.

"He is a brilliant help as sometimes the physios want Isabella to do something she doesn't want to. So we ask Harvey to show her what to do and she will follow. He is there for her all the time, so protective - he picks her up if she falls and carries her plate to the table because she can't do it on her own."

Phil adds: "When Julie first mentioned getting involved with the appeal, I just didn't think she would have the time.

"But she has really proved me wrong and never ceases to amaze me with her ideas and dedication to the charity.

"I couldn't believe it when we were invited to Downing Street - all thanks to Julie. It is a credit to her that she has got so many people to take notice.

"The children love being part of the appeal as well. Isabella never views herself as one of the 'sick children'. She might have a disability, but she doesn't moan and just gets on with it."

Since the Nevilles became patrons of the New Children's Hospital Appeal Julie's fundraising has been phenomenal.

First she got the support of local radio DJs and Coronation Street stars. Then she organised a celebrity auction - Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss donated prizes, while Shayne Ward, Russell Watson and Natasha Hamilton all sang for free. It raised £112,000.

Next, she went to Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his wife Sarah. The Browns agreed to hold a reception at No10 for the hospital appeal and its supporters to boost its profile.

Julie and Phil also fronted three of the Mini Manchester Runs. Last year, to start one of the fundraising races, little Isabella ran alongside Olympic champion Usain Bolt.

Phil says: "After being told Isabella would never walk, to see her running with Usain Bolt was such a fantastic feeling."

Julie finally hit her £20million target after organising another celebrity auction, this time roping in JLS and Stavros Flatley to perform.

But she wasn't about to sit down and put her feet up. Now she has launched another appeal to raise funds for specialist equipment, research into children's illnesses and to create a more child-friendly hospital environment.

Tesco CEO Sir Terry Leahy has agreed to put the might of his supermarket empire behind the appeal . Julie says: "Tesco has agreed to sponsor our annual non-uniform day.

"Little did I know when I first agreed to get involved with this appeal that it would achieve so much - and that it would help me cope with the most difficult time of my life."

18: Phil Neville : Captain Fantastic

Post  Super on Tue 23 Mar 2010, 11:59 am

Everton captain Phil Neville has not given up hope of fulfilling his dream of playing in a World Cup finals. The Blues skipper helped the side to a seventh consecutive home win in the league on Saturday, with a 2-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers. His continued consistency for the Toffees as a right-back has led to some pedia speculation about Neville's chances of a late call-up to the England World Cup squad. Fabio Capello has had problems at right-back recently, with Glen Johnson recently back from injury and Wes Brown suffering a broken metatarsal. Neville - who has won 59 caps for the Three Lions - admits he would be delighted if he was to be selected in the final 23 World Cup squad, to be announced by Capello on June 1. But he is also realistic about his chances of being selected and concedes he is an outside bet for a seat on the plane to South Africa. “I’ll keep playing to the best of my ability and it’s up to the England manager to select the best players available,” he said. “But at the back of my mind he’s not picked me in a squad yet so maybe my time’s gone.
