Bid now on Stags' Poppy shirt

11 November 2015

The Royal British Legion, in conjunction with Sky Bet, are currently auctioning off signed Poppy-adorned shirts from all 48 Sky Bet League One and League Two clubs.

By visiting www.skybet.com/poppy you can bid on Mansfield Town’s signed Poppy shirt and all money received from the winning bids will go directly to the Poppy Appeal.

Last year, Sky Bet and all Championship clubs raised over £118,000 through a similar campaign and now all 72 Football League clubs will be taking part this time around. Clubs from the Championship are auctioning off match-worn shirts and commemorative balls in addition to the shirts being auctioned from League One and League Two clubs.

The money raised from this year’s campaign will go towards supporting services such as The Royal British Legion’s Family Holiday Breaks, which contributes towards the families of serving and ex-service personnel taking family breaks away from the strains of everyday life.

Sky Bet spokesperson, Edwin Martin, said: “Last season, the response from Championship fans was absolutely phenomenal and we are thrilled to be able to invite fans of all 72 Football League clubs to help us beat last year’s total in what promises to be our biggest auction yet.

“It’s great to see football fans come together to help communities across the UK by giving back to the families of those who have done so much for this country.”

The Royal British Legion’s Head of Corporate Partnerships, Louise Ajdukiewicz, said: “It’s absolutely fantastic to have Sky Bet’s support for a second year running. 

“The 2014 campaign raised an astounding amount for the Legion, and we are thrilled that they will be supporting us again by raising funds for vital services like the Battle Back Centre and Family Holiday Breaks.”
