An auction for special Brentford shirts with a poppy on is set to raise a significant sum for The Royal British Legion. As in recent years, Brentford FC supported The Royal British Legion and the Armed Forces community as all players wore shirts bearing the poppy as a symbol of remembrance and hope when we faced Middlesbrough on Saturday, 7 November. These shirts were signed by the players and are available to bid on now at matchwornshirt.co.uk/club/brentford.
The shirts are now ready to be shipped when the auctions end later this month. Current bids on the shirts are in excess of £4,000. Precise details of the current bid for each shirt can be seen at matchwornshirt.co.uk/club/brentford. The auctions will close at 12noon on Saturday 28 November.
By getting involved you have the chance of winning the ultimate piece of fan memorabilia, a match worn, player signed, poppy embroidered shirt of your favourite player. The proceeds will go to The Royal British Legion. This means that not only can you win a fan item like no other, you will also help improve the circumstances for some of the most vulnerable but deserving individuals within our communities.
The Royal British Legion is the country’s largest Armed Forces charity. It is the Legion’s aim to provide lifelong support for those who have been affected - both physically and mentally - as a result of their service. The Legion provides essential support to individuals and families in need, yet they are entirely dependent on the support from the public. This is where your contributions can really make a difference. You can find out more information on The Legion’s great work at britishlegion.org.uk/about-us/who-we-are.
Want to get involved? Simply head over to matchwornshirt.co.uk/poppy and place a bid. Once the auction ends the shirts will be professionally disinfected using UV-C light before being shipped out to the winner.
