A SIGNED Mac­cles­field Town shirt and ball has been made avail­able for auc­tion, in or­der to raise funds for a child with Char­cot-Marie-Tooth dis­ease.

The con­di­tion, which is cur­rently in­cur­able, af­fects mo­bil­ity of the hands, feet, an­kles and legs.

She said: “The con­di­tion af­fects Molly’s hands and feet. It re­duces her flex­i­bil­ity and gen­eral ac­tiv­ity at school.”

Any Silk­men fans wish­ing to make a bid for the signed shirt or ball can email Joanna on: joan­na­jwhit­taker@aol.com; stat­ing which item it is they would like to bid for.
