All the money raised will be put towards road safety improvements on the A141 in Huntingdon where 16-year-old Warren Hay was knocked down and killed by a car.
The Chelsea fan had been crossing the road to watch a football match at Jubilee Park.

Both Huntingdon Town Council and Huntingdonshire District Council are looking at the possibility of providing some funding.
