A man whose fundraising appeal went viral after it was retweeted by a BT Sport presenter said he is overwheImed.
Ross Coniam is taking on nine fundraising challenges in 2019, in memory of his daughter Norah Faith, who he tragically lost in May last year after difficulties during labour.
He wants to help raise awareness of baby loss and raise money for charities who are supporting other families dealing with the loss of a child.
Ross attended the FA Cup semi final between Watford and Wolves on Saturday wearing a Nine4Norah hoodie.
The hashtag was spotted by Jake Humphrey, BT sport presenter, who retweeted it.
Today, (April 9), the total stands at £26,703, just two days after the match.
Before the tweet, the total was £3,058.
Ross said he is incredibly grateful to Jake and everyone who has donated.
He added: “I’m literally so overwhelmed and it still doesn’t feel real and getting to £20,000 is unreal. I would love to meet Jake and I will try contacting him soon after a few days when things quieten down.”
