Benito Carbone will be heading back to Sheffield Wednesday for a charity game this weekend.

In a statement on the club’s website today they explained where the money raised from the event will go, saying, “Funds raised from the event will aid Weston Park Cancer Charity in Sheffield and Real Top Praha in Pudil’s homeland.

“The Czech charity are supporting two-year old Simon, who is battling Lesch-Nyhan syndrome, a kidney-neurological disease affecting psychomotor development, causing organ failure, and leading the sufferer to commit self-harm.

“Donations will help Simon receive the treatment he needs to prevent symptoms of the disease developing.

“Weston Park Cancer Charity help thousands of people every year in the fight against cancer, conducting research, providing treatment, care and support for those with the illness and their families.”

The game will kick off at 1.30pm on Saturday afternoon.
