Bid to win match-worn Rovers shirts and match ball

3 December 2015

Bit to win a signed, match worn, Blackburn Rovers poppy shirt to help raise funds for The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.

Football League sponsor Sky Bet is auctioning hundreds of match-worn, signed shirts from Sky Bet Championship clubs in aid of The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.

Items from all 24 Sky Bet Championship clubs have gone under the hammer following the games on Friday November 6 and Saturday November 7.

But that's not all, the 12 limited-edition Mitre commemorative match-balls used in weekend Sky Bet Championship fixtures will also be auctioned.

Last year, Sky Bet and the Championship clubs worked together to raise over £118,000 for The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal through the #BidToRemember campaign.

All money raised this year will go towards supporting vital services such as The Royal British Legion's Family Holiday Breaks, which provides the families of serving and ex-Service personnel the chance to take a break away from the strains of everyday life.

Sky Bet Head of Sponsorship Edwin Martin said: "Last year, the response we got from fans of clubs in the Championship was absolutely phenomenal. 

"They really dug deep and raised a fantastic amount of money for an inspiring cause.

"The aim this year is to continue to support the work the Legion does in communities all around the UK and to give back to the families who have done so much for us."

The Royal British Legion's Head of Corporate Partnerships, Louise Ajdukiewicz, said: "It's absolutely fantastic to have Sky Bet's support for a second year running. The 2014 campaign raised an astounding amount for the Legion, and we are thrilled that they will be supporting us again by raising funds for vital services like the Battle Back Centre and Family Holiday Breaks."
