'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Saints Fans Thanked

On Saturday, a charity collection was held at St Mary's Stadium prior to the match against Charlton Athletic.. Southampton Football Club and the Smile4Rich Appeal would like to thank the fans of both teams for their donations.

Smile4Rich was set up in memory od 15 year old Richard Bowler who died after suffering a brain haemorrhage while training with his youth football team in July 2002.

Since then the charity has been able to raise more than 400,000 to fund projects at Southampton's Wessex Neurological Centre. One such project being a dedicated Neuri Intensive Care Ambulance. Another is the specially equipped suite which is used to assess children with severe epilepsy for life-changing surgery.

The Wessex Neurological Centre treats approximately 4,500 patients a year and is one of the most well respected specialist neurological centres in the country.

Following a horrific motorcycle accident in August 2007, Saints comminity coach Ricky Fernandez was treated at the centre for several life threatening injuries. Ricky has made a truly remarkable recovery and has recently returned , part-time, to his work at the club.

Donations received from fans will go towards a new appeal which is for the equipping of a new, state-of-the-art operating microscope which is fitted with fluorescence imaging rechnology. This will enable surgeons to have real-time images of blood flow in the brain during neurovascular surgery.

This modern technology is for conditions such as, brain haemorrhages and aneurysms, reducing the chance of post operative complications. In doing so reducing the time for patient recovery in the long term.

Thanks to Southampton FC for this information.

It is good when we can give something to someone that deserves it, well done the Saints Supporters.

It is nice when some good can come from a game of football. We have always seen the reports of bother and it makes a real change to see a happy tale instead.

Loved it when I read it and am always grateful none of mine are in need of this sort of specialist treatment.
