Isle of Wight charity event raises thousands

Thousands of pounds have been raised for charity at a recent event which took place on the Isle of Wight.

Locals and tourists on Isle of Wight holidays turned out at St George's Park on Sunday (November 6th 2010) to see a team of former Portsmouth players.

Although England international Darren Anderton had to pull out of the match, Alan Knight, Andy Awford and Mark Chamberlain were among the big names to take part.

Awford, a modern-day Portsmouth legend, made almost 300 league appearances for the south coast club, while Knight played more than 680 times for the team.

The Isle of Wight County Press reports that the team of ex-Pompey men beat a side of Isle of Wight footballers 3-1 on the day, with £3,250 raised for charity by the 1,000 attendees.

Island events promoter Jamie Bray set up the match to drum up funds for cancer sufferer Tyra Atkinson-Baldwin, 3.
