Graham hoping to hit £10k mark!

The Rovers striker is raffling his League One Team of the Year medal to raise funds for the NHS

20 May 2020

Danny Graham's fundraising efforts for the NHS look set to reach the £10,000 mark, as he gives fans the opportunity to own his PFA League One Team of the Year medal!

The striker was one of four Rovers players to receive a divisional award in 2017-18, along with Bradley Dack, Charlie Mulgrew and Amari’i Bell, after helping the club secure an immediate return to the Championship.

The PFA Awards recognise the outstanding performers in each division over a 12-month period, with Graham’s 14 league goals that season a key factor in Rovers’ promotion success.

Over recent weeks, the 34-year-old has been auctioning off a number of prized possessions from his football career in order to raise money for the QE Hospital in Gateshead, where he was born.

Having initially set himself a target of £5,000, Graham’s fundraising efforts have now surpassed £9,600 and he hopes his latest raffle will take the total past the magic £10,000 mark.

“Hopefully we can try and hit that £10,000 mark and it would be an incredible achievement if we can do that," he said.

“Everyone who has been involved so far have put their hands in their pocket towards a great cause and hopefully they’ve enjoyed the raffles.

“So one last big one, before the fundraiser page closes. I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has donated to raise this amount of money so far. It’s been incredible and if we can get over that £10,000 mark it would just top everything off.”

To have a chance of claiming the star prize, fans are asked to donate £25 to Graham’s JustGiving page and use #NHS when leaving their name and donation. The raffle will remain open for another three days.
