Video: Footballer Stephen Small saw his father lose his battle with cancer, now his goal is to give something back to the NI Hospice

Ex-Cliftonville player Stephen Small talks about his fundraising drive for the Northern Ireland Hospice after the passing of his father Sean Small last month.

He said, "the emotional and medical care they've provided for my family has been a godsend."

Fundraising events include a coffee morning, a Twilight walk on Friday the 2nd of October and a fun day up at Stormont on Saturday from 10am - 4pm.

Stephen played for Cliftonville from 1996 - 2005 and has since managed at Carrick Rangers and Donegal Celtic football clubs. He's now taking a break from the management side of football and is now involved with coaching and development at Belfast Met so he can devote more time to his family and mother Mary who is recovering from cancer.

Stephen has set up a 'Just Giving' page in memory of his father Sean to raise money for the Northern Ireland Hospice. Without the help of the hospice Stephen said, "his last couple of months would have been much more difficult."
