POPPY APPEAL

17 November 2015

Club raise £8700 for charity in shirt auction

Town raised £8712 for charity by auctioning signed, matchworn shirts from the game against Bolton, depicting the Royal British Legion poppy. 

Mick McCarthy’s side wore a one-off shirt for the 2-0 win over Wanderers to mark Remembrance Day and as a tribute to those who lost their lives during wartime.  

The 21 players named in the squad for the game signed both the front and back of their respective shirts and they were made available for auction on eBay.

Daryl Murphy’s shirt proved the most lucrative, raising £811, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who scored Blues’ opening goal on the night, saw his shirt go for £620.06.

The money raised through the auction will be split between the Ipswich Royal British Legion and The Royal Artillery Charitable Fund, a charity chosen by 7th Parachute Regiment Royal Horse Artillery, who are based at Colchester.

The Club would like to thank everybody who took part in the auction and played a part in raising money for such a worthy cause.
