Sheffield Wednesday and official kit partner Macron are proud to donate 25 signed shirts to a variety of local charities this Christmas.
During our summer pre-season friendly fixtures, the Owls donned a one-off Macron strip which both parties pledged for charity auction later in the year.
The shirts have since been fully signed by the Wednesday squad and will now be donated to a range of charities in our community.
Each auctioned shirt will help raise vital funds and awareness for the charities across the region over the Christmas period.
Margaret Lewis, Chief Executive of Mind Sheffield, said: “We are thrilled to have been chosen.
All money we raise will go straight back into delivering our vital services, so supporting the mental health of the people of Sheffield.
“In the last 18 months we’ve had 3,266 calls to Sheffield Mind, from members of the public who want advice, information, or a listening ear, and we usually get an increase of calls in the New Year so this donation is a fantastic help.”
The Owls’ Head of Community Marcus Brameld added: “We are really proud of this initiative and our thanks go to Macron too for their generosity.
“Christmas is a time for coming together to help those who need it the most and we hope the auctions raise as much money, and awareness as well, for the vital work our local charities conduct.”

Weston Park Hospital
Sheffield Children’s Hospital
Yorkshire Ambulance Service
Create a Dream Foundation

Sanctuary Housing Association
