An auction of special Brentford shirts raised just short of £5,000 for charity last week, and there is still a chance to take part. When The Bees took on Huddersfield Town last weekend they wore shirts emblazened with the poppy. These shirts were auctioned to raise funds for the Royal British Legion and a total of £4,999 was collected.
The shirts were made available to auction from kick-off and were personally signed by the relevant player after the match. They were offered unwashed – so all grass and mud stains are still there - and all bids were inclusive of worldwide secured shipping and payment handling fees. All proceeds will go to The Royal British Legion’s vital work supporting the Armed Forces Community and more will be raised this week.
Brentford's black shirts in the 3-0 win over Wigan Athletic on Saturday also carried the poppy. And they are up for auction now. There is still more than two days to make a bid.
