As in recent years, Brentford FC will to show their support for The Royal British Legion and the Armed Forces community this weekend. All players will wear shirts bearing the poppy as a symbol of remembrance and hope when we face Middlesbrough tomorrow, Saturday 7 November. These shirts will be personally signed by the players after the game and will be available to bid on straight from kick-off at matchwornshirt.co.uk/club/brentford.
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. The auction begins at kick-off for each game, so you can place your bids whilst watching the shirt being worn! Once the auction ends the shirts will be professionally disinfected using UV-C light before being shipped out to the winner.
