The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Joshua Peck

MILL­WALL re­ally did help the he­roes, with the Lon­don club pre­sent­ing Headley Court with a cheque for al­most £37,000!

The League One side wore a cam­ou­flage kit in their clash with Brent­ford last Novem­ber to raise money for in­jured sol­diers, with £10 from ev­ery shirt sold go­ing to the army re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion cen­tre in Sur­rey.

The shirts worn by the Lions were also auc­tioned off and £1 from ev­ery pro­gramme sold on the day was passed on.The money was handed over be­fore last week’s en­counter with Rochdale, with a to­tal of £36,905.85 raised.

Sur­geon Cap­tain Paul Hughes, the Com­mand­ing Of­fice of the De­fence Med­i­cal Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Cen­tre Headley Court, said: “On be­half of all the pa­tients and staff at Headley Court, I would like to thank Mill­wall, its staff and fans for all the sup­port you have given to our in­jured ser­vice­men and women. I would par­tic­u­larly like to give credit to the suc­cess­ful idea of play­ing in Headley Court shirts on the Satur­day be­fore Re­mem­brance Sun­day.”
