Ferguson hosted a star-studded charity event at a hotel in Manchester, raising a staggering KSh 53 million (£400,000) for the National Hospital Services.
A source who spoke to SunSport disclosed the legendary United manager was full of life during the event and was keen to have all the proceeds raised from the charity channeled to NHS.
"Alex was in great form all night and had guests in stitches with his stories. It raised a lot of money but Alex was determined that all of it should go to the NHS," the source said.
"He's always been a great supporter of them and that’s become even more the case since his health issues," the source added.
