Charity auction hitting the heights

16 November 2014

  • Sky Bet auction reaping rewards
  • Stevie May leads the way for Wednesday
  • Souvenir programme stands at £165
  • All proceeds donated to Royal British Legion

Football League title sponsor Sky Bet’s #BidToRemember signed shirt auction has gone through the £70,000 barrier.

And there are plenty of Poppy Shirts - signed by the players who wore them - still to bid for.

All proceeds go directly to the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal, supporting the whole Armed Forces community, through welfare, comradeship and representation.

Sky Bet Head of Sponsorship Edwin Martin said: “We’re delighted with how much we’ve raised so far for The Royal British Legion.

“The generosity of Football League club fans was never in doubt, but they are surpassing themselves this year.

“We’ve had fantastic cooperation from the Sky Bet Championship clubs and we can’t wait to see what the final amount raised will be.”

The Owls’ match-worn shirts up for grabs are those from the recent home clash with Rotherham.

Striker Stevie May is in pole position, with the bidding for the Scotland man's shirt currently standing at £280.

The Owls have also donated a fully signed souvenir programme from the Millers game to aid the Poppy Appeal.

The special edition, which included a dedicated section of the club’s wartime activity, sold out on the day and the auction for the last available copy stands at an impressive £165!
