Char­ity scores an Eng­land boost

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

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.
