BRAINTREE Town fans will have another chance tonight to help a cause that is very special to manager Bradley Quinton.

Quinton’s seven-year-old son Bobby is undergoing surgery at Great Ormond Street Hospital to correct a heart condition and the Iron boss wants to raise money to help the London children’s institution that has given his boy “amazing” care.

A bucket collection was held at Saturday's Vanarama National League South game against Weston Super Mare and another will be held tonight when the Iron face Truro City.

Quinton is hoping fans will continue to be generous to give their support to the London children’s hospital and he has also set up a Just Giving page on the internet where people can donate cash to boost his collection even further.

Bobby suffers from supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), which gives him an abnormally fast heart rate, but the operation that is coming up will sort that and Quinton wants to say thank you to the hospital staff by helping them.

He said: “I’m raising money for Great Ormond Street as the things they have done for us with Bobby have been tremendous.

“It’s a truly amazing place and something that I really want to help.

“Bobby has SVT so his heart needs an operation; it’s pretty major, but it’s something that needs to be done and he can’t wait to be able to get out again kicking a ball about.

“It’s very tough for him as he’s only just seven and especially with a five-year-old brother who wonders why he can’t play rough and tumble at the moment.

“So he’s having the operation and I just really want to raise money to help Great Ormond Street as they are such amazing people.”
