More than £400 has so far been raised in memory of the late Len Phillips.
Pompey Supporters Trust have launched a campaign to collect donations for the Exbury Ward, St James’ Hospital, which helped care for the Blues legend. The Trust is accepting donations via its website while collection tins were at Fratton Park for the clash with Watford.
And with fundraising set to continue until after the West Ham fixture (January 15), more money is hoped to be collected.
A Trust spokesman said: ‘The Trust are pleased with the initial response to the appeal for donations to the Phillips family’s chosen cause, especially a very generous donation from a Mr Williamson who donated on behalf of his father, Bert, who watched Len play.
‘The Phillips family have also expressed their delight that fans want to show their appreciation of Len’s life by donating to the ward that looked after him so well.’
