Earlier this week we reported that NUFC fan David Stonebank got the badge of his footballing rivals, Sunderland AFC, tattooed on his leg to help 5-year-old nephew, Bradley.

The youngster, an avid Black Cats supporter, is battling neuroblastoma - and £700,000 is needed to fund his treatment in America.

David pledged to go through with the tattoo if he received at £1,000 in sponsorship. He added: "I would do anything to raise money for our little hero."
