Hospice to auc­tion off limited edi­tion Posh shirts

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

SUE Ry­der Care is auc­tion­ing off sev­eral limited edi­tion foot­ball shirts worn by Posh last sea­son.

Peter­bor­ough United had agreed to spon­sor three char­i­ties on their kit last sea­son in­clud­ing ASBAH, Free Kicks and Sue Ry­der Care.

Sue Ry­der Care, which is based in Longth­orpe, Peter­bor­ough, is the only char­ity not to have auc­tioned off its spe­cial shirts yet.

And, as World Cup fever sweeps the nation, this is Posh fans’ last chance to ei­ther col­lect one of the shirts worn by their favourite foot­baller or to com­plete their col­lec­tion if they have al­ready got shirts from the kits auc­tioned off by the other two char­i­ties.

The bid­ding will com­mence to­day – the same day as Posh be­gin pre­sea­son train­ing – with the min­i­mum bid at £25 per shirt.

In two weeks’ time, the bids will be viewed and the high­est will win.

Fundraiser at the hospice, Emma Long said: “It’s fan­tas­tic that Posh gave the three char­i­ties the spon­sor­ship on the kits and we at Sue Ry­der Care hope to raise a lot of money from the bid­ding on the shirts. This is a great op­por­tu­nity to raise money for Sue Ry­der in this way.”

Any­one in­ter­ested in bid­ding should call Sue Ry­der Care’s Thorpe Hall Hospice fundrais­ing team on 01733 330060 or al­ter­na­tively e-mail at thorpe.fundrais­ing@suery­der­care.org, or visit www.suery­der­care.org.
