Charity scores an England boost
A PETERBOROUGH charity is hoping to benefit from World Cup fever by putting a signed England shirt up for auction.
Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus (ASBAH), whose patron is former England international Danny Mills, is hoping to raise some much-needed funds by putting up a signed England shirt on the auction website eBay.
The shirt was worn by Danny Mills against Denmark in November 2003, who this year has already raised well over £10,000 in his fundraising efforts for ASBAH.
A spokesman for the charity said: “It provides a one-off chance for any die-hard England fan to get their hands on a 100 per cent authentic, signed and worn jersey.”
The former Charlton Athletic, Leeds United, Middlesbrough, Manchester City, Hull City and Derby County footballer, Danny Mills added: “ASBAH is a charity and organisation that is very close to my heart and I hope that the bids for this top will come flooding in.
“I know that there are one or two England shirts on eBay at the moment, but I do not know of any that have actually been worn during a game and hopefully this aspect will prove attractive to any hard core England supporters.
“Remember, all the money raised will go straight to ASBAH to help maintain the essential services they provide to children, families and individuals throughout England.”
The auction ends on June 20.
