An 11-year-old Manchester United fan has raised enough money to pay for over 115,000 meals by walking from Larne in Northern Ireland to Old Trafford. Ben Dickinson was congratulated by Sir Alex Ferguson, who welcomed him into his private suite ahead of the Premier League game against Tottenham. The final total will benefit FareShare, the charity supported by Marcus Rashford, who last year appeared on a Sky Sports News Zoom call to surprise Ben after he raised £7,200 by walking a mile a day for 26 days during lockdown. Ahead of his latest challenge the youngster, who stayed at Hotel Football before the game, was presented with a cheque by Gary Neville. The former United defender and Sky Sports pundit told him he was doing "great work." Ben received messages of support from Raphael Varane, Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes. He was presented with signed shirts from Ferguson and the current first team squad.
