Hundreds raised in Brentford Boot the Virus auctions

Money raised for NHS Charities by Bees players and others

7 June 2020

Brentford's players' donations to the Boot the Virus auctions, where players donate boots to raise money for the NHS, proved to be very popular. Brentford players are among those that supported the Boot The Virus campaign, created by two football fans for football fans, to help the fantastic work of the NHS. The auctions came to an end at the end of last month and more than £70,000 was raised across all four divisions.

Brentford contributed a lot to the total. Goalkeepers David Raya and Luke Daniels, defenders Henrik Dalsgaard, Ethan Pinnock and Mads Bech Sørensen, midfield player Jan Žambůrek and attackers Sergia Canós and Joel Valencia donated their boots. They raised around £1,300 with their donations. See more here.

Lifelong Preston North End supporter Kenny Marland and his partner Joanne Dalton created the campaign to unite the football community across the UK in a bid to raise funds for the incredible NHS heroes. The initiative sees professional footballers donate a pair of signed matchday boots which will then be auctioned online with all of the funds raised going directly to the NHS.
