Ipswich Town owner Brett Johnson took time out during his whirlwind Portman Road visit to present a cheque to the Colchester Special Care Baby Unit.
The cheque for £1,620 is a result of sales of the ‘Adventures of a Tractor Boy’ book, written by Town fan Graeme Brooke.
The book, first published in 2014, has enjoyed a resurgence since the Blues were taken over by Johnson’s Gamechanger 20 group in April, with Town’s co-owner reviewing the book online and posing with a copy at his home in Los Angeles.
That exposure has meant the total amount raised from book sales for the unit now totals £3,870.
Johnson presented the cheque alongside Graeme at Portman Road on Friday afternoon, prior to the follow day’s game with Fleetwood.
Bersant Celina scored a late winner, raising the roof off Portman Road and moving Town into the top half of the League One table.
‘Adventures of a Tractor Boy’ remains available to buy here.
