11 March 2015

Chambo shirt proves most popular as Blues back The Royal British Legion

Signed Town shirts have raised £6,185 for The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal in Sky Bet’s #BidToRemember auction.

The 11 match-worn shirts, as well as eight signed squad shirts, from Blues’ 1-0 win over Watford on November 8 were auctioned through Sky Bet’s eBay site.

Fans from all over the UK placed their bids on the shirts, which included a limited edition poppy badge emblazoned on the chest.

The most expensive Town shirt was Luke Chambers’, which fetched £630.

In total, the signed football shirts auction from all 24 Championship clubs raised £118,897. 

All the money raised will be used by The Royal British Legion to provide funding for services such as the Battle Back Centre in Lilleshall, an adaptive sport and adventurous training facility for wounded, injured and sick Service personnel.
