Dani­her jumper up for grabs

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Wim­mera Legacy lead­ers hope sell­ing a framed jumper worn and signed by Essendon star for­ward Joe Dani­her will raise a sig­nif­i­cant amount of money for the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Le­ga­tee Alex Stewart said Dani­her wore the guernsey in the Bombers’ An­zac Day clash against Colling­wood in 2016.

“He’s a very ex­cit­ing player and we’re thrilled to be able to use one of his jumpers – es­pe­cially one worn dur­ing an An­zac Day match – for Wim­mera Legacy,” he said.

“It’s a great-look­ing jumper, fea­tur­ing a strip of red poppies. We think it is go­ing to cre­ate a lot of in­ter­est.”

Mr Stewart said Legacy lead­ers were still de­ter­min­ing the best way to sell the jumper.

“A few peo­ple have sug­gested we auc­tion it and oth­ers have said we should put it on the in­ter­net,” he said.

“We’re hop­ing to get a bit of pub­lic­ity and in­ter­est and af­ter that we’ll de­cide what to do with it.

“We auc­tioned a signed Essendon jumper a few years ago, which wasn’t framed, and it raised about $650.

“We’re hop­ing to raise as much money as we can with this one.”

Mr Stewart said Wim­mera Legacy cared for about 300 wid­ows of de­ceased war veter­ans.

He said peo­ple could call Bron­wyn Len­nox at Wim­mera Legacy on 5382 1543 with fundrais­ing ideas or of­fers for the Essendon jumper.
