We've received a request from a Millwall fan to post a justgiving request, which we are happy to post up.

Great cause mate.

I’ll post my message below for you to read and make your decision.

Thank you

#Cancer has no colours

Firstly hello all and I hope it is ok with the moderators to post this.

My name is Tony Munday, I am a 49 year old unfit Millwall supporter (someone has to be) who is heading for the knackers yard. On Sunday March 18th I am running the Brentwood half marathon  on behalf of a 3 year old little girl called Isla Caton who is suffering from the same horrible disease that took Bradley Lowery the boy who captured the nations hearts.
The disease is Neuroblastoma and the treatment for this is only available in America.
On Tuesday young Isla had an operation to move a tumour from her brain and now goes back to chemo treatment to clear the cancer.
Through the Bradley Lowery foundation the family need to raise £400,000.

Here’s the catch.

Isla Caton is born into a staunch West Ham family and as a Millwall supporter I am using this as leverage to raise as much money for her as possible.
The rivalry between the two clubs is huge and I pray they lose every week.

I set my original target at £1000 and declared I would run in a West Ham shirt if reached. Due to having many West Ham friends who I have wound up over the years I reached the £1000 in 24 hours.
I added targets
£2000 to run in full kit
£3500 to do crossed hammers at finish line
£7000 to run with dyed claret and blue hair
I’ve topped the £7000 so the hair will be dyed,then raised  to £12,000 as this girl needs as much as possible but that has also been reached. Now I’ve set it at £15,000.
The Bradley Lowery foundation is a marvellous tribute to the sadly missed youngster.

Normally I wouldn’t even look at a West Ham kit let alone wear one but I’m prepared for the stick I’ll get for the rest of my life so this amazing little girl gets what she needs. My pain will be nothing compared to what she is going through.
It’s a very small sacrifice for me to make.

I plan on joining forums of all 92 league clubs plus the 5 big Scottish clubs to post this message and hoping the football family come together to help smash this target and help send this incredibly brave little girl to America to save her life by donating to my just giving page.
Since I started joining the various forums a few days ago it has been a roaring success

In my eyes cancer has no colours especially in children.
Isla’s twitter address is @islasfight, feel free to look and see what she’s going through

Here is my just giving page below, hopefully you will find it in your hearts to donate to the cause through my run.
Forget the new £15,000 target lets smash it to as much as possible, this angel deserves a chance at life

I thank you all so much in advance

Went on to the Bradley Lowery page, to see if I could access anything to do with Just Giving, but afraid not. Tried all sorts, but the page won't come up. Hopefully, its just a temporary thing.

Happy to help Lion.

I've sent you a message suggesting another Bolton forum 9WanderersWays) that has done a great deal for good causes in the past.  I'm sure they would be more than happy to support your cause if they can.

Best of luck with everything.

Just donated, let's hope Tony gets far beyond £15K and Isla gets to go to America for treatment.

I'm really pleased that the Bolton fans on here and WandersWays have rallied around on this.

I tweeted out your appeal and within a minute it was Retweeted by 'Superagent' (who is Lee Anderson the son of the clubs owner)!

Power to your elbow Lion!

Below is the link to Isla's just giving page showing how people have come together to collect nearly £280,000 for her (and includes Lion's part in the fund raising).

I met young Isla and her family last night for the first time when I went to collect the West Ham kit from their house.  A very very humbling experience.

Isla’s parents are so strong and Isla was running around like any normal 3 year old just a week after an op to remove a brain tumour with the only visible signs being her face and head are totally bruised from the surgery.

An inspiration for all.

By the way, the Bolton support of Isla has not gone unnoticed by Isla’s family or the West Ham and Millwall support in general.

Well said Bonce.

If we all do our little bit then we can move mountains together.

All the best with the run, Lion.

Where do I start!!!

Today’s Brentwood half marathon was cancelled due to the inclement weather and will not be rescheduled.
I took all the donations on the premise that I would do the forfeits I put in place.
So I will honour them all.

So now on Saturday 31st March, I will run a much more dangerous route from Cold Blow Lane to the Olympic Stadium via the New Den and the Boleyn ground wearing full West Ham kit and having claret and blue dyed hair. I will do crosses hammers at the finish where I will meet up with some of Isla’s fundraisers and then take in the West Ham v Southampton game

I’ll be surprised if I don’t get a whack from someone along the route, more so through Millwall territory in Bermondsey!!

I hope this will satisfy all of those who have donated.
Wish me luck, I need it!!

I thank you all once more for your incredible support.

Will you be supporting Southampton at the game!


Great effort from you Lion and I hope it brings a huge amount of media interest in little Isla's cause.

100% I’ll be supporting the Saints. 
Amazingly supporting Millwall, I won’t be the least popular person in the ground what with Gold and Sullivan turning up

No one will insure me, apparently it’s the same risk as going on a two week holiday to Beirut

Look out for the Goals pull out in The Sun this weekend, it’s possible there will be a bit in there about Isla, the run and the coming together of football fans to raise this money

Well it’s all done and dusted, I did it!!!
Had a great day, met and drank with some proper old school West Ham. Got drunk as you like and had a good laugh with them.
But most importantly as a group, I and all the supporters on the forums I’ve connected with have raised over £21,000 for the beautiful young Isla.
I want to thank the Bolton fans on both forum groups for all your donations and support. You have been incredible and should be proud of yourselves. A proper club with proper fans.

Thank you again and if you want to donate again the link is

I’ll just post some photos up of the day and once more say thank you
