Target reached for Notts Hospice

Auction success for Panthers

With fabulous support from the fans the GMB Panthers are pleased to announce we smashed through the top end of our target for fund-raising for The Nottinghamshire Hospice.

The "stars design" shirts went under the hammer and having set a hopeful target of raising between five and ten thousand pounds this season we had nearly three-and-a-half thousand pounds in the kitty going into the shirt auction which is always our biggest project when it comes to fund-raising. The ten thousand pounds barrier was cracked during the last lot of the night and then Panthers' GM announced the club would be topping it up to a grand total of £12,000!

Thank you to everyone who took part, not least those involved in the bidding for the last lot - Alex Mokshantsev's shirt - which eventually went for £960 and will be a very special eighteenth birthday present from Oliver Ratcliffe for his cousin Lucy Stephens!
