A safe pair of hands to hold the collecting tin

Arsenal and Scotland goalkeeping legend Bob Wilson retired from football punditry at about the right time, if the insomnia-inducing fare on show in the Premiership this season is anything to go by. But since Bob’s “retirement”, he’s been busier than ever.

The Willow Foundation, a charity founded by Wilson and his wife Meg in memory of their daughter Anna, who lost her fight against cancer at the age of 31, provides “special days” for people with life-threatening diseases.

The charity has operated predominantly in Hertfordshire and the South-east, but this week it launches nationally. Celebrities including Richard Keys, David Seaman and Natasha Kaplinsky, pictured with Wilson and breast cancer sufferer Eloise Clarke, supported the launch.
