HEADLEY HEROES HELPED BY LIONS
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.”
