"I can't coach any football now, so I thought if I raised something, that would help.

"If everyone in the UK could raise £100, that would be a huge help.

"I have been coaching for so many different clubs I thought I could make up the colours of NHS Rainbow.

"I'm wearing each top for a day, and sleeping in it too, and by the end of the month the tops I have worn will make up overall the colours for the NHS Rainbow.

"I've got my mate Jason Henley to post some keepie-uppie challenges encouraging people to give it a go and keep active, and we also put quizzes on the page to keep it as interactive as possible.

"I thought it would be a fun fundraiser to do while we are all stuck at home."
