Charity Shirt Auction in January
The special charity shirts worn by the players over the festive period in the home games against Sheffield and Coventry will go under the auctioneer’s hammer to raise funds for charity later this month. We’re aiming at staging the auction after the game at the National Ice Centre on Sunday January 22nd. The shirts looked even better than imagined out on the ice and the game-worn shirts will now be sold, as planned, to raise funds for Headway – the Nottingham based charity which funds research into head and brain injuries and also provides support and help for victims. It’s important and vital work and we’re hoping to raise as much as we can to help them take their work forward. There are still a few “replica” shirts of the special tuxedo design available and these will be on sale in the foyer at upcoming games. Our hope is that the sale of the replicas will cover the cost of all the jerseys so enabling us to donate EVERY PENNY from the shirt auction to Headway. We’ve already raised nearly a thousand pounds towards the fund raising with the sale of some vintage shirts and other donations, which added to the replica sales to date means we’re nearly at the stage already where every penny from the game worn shirt auction will be going to Headway. The players will be at the shirt auction to customize your purchases with autographs and messages if you wish. Your support is very appreciated.
