Royals Poppy Appeal shirts available for auction!

Get bidding and raise money for the British Legion…

19 December 2017

Poppy shirts worn by Reading players in our game against Wolverhampton Wanderers are going under the hammer as part of the Sky Bet Poppy Auction.

17 Reading shirts, from the Sky Bet Championship fixture on 18th November, are being auctioned on the CharityStars website.

Bidding closes on all of the hooped shirts on Wednesday 27th December – it could make a perfect late Christmas present for a fellow Royal!

Sky Bet’s relationship with the British Legion now spans four seasons, with over £300,000 raised, thanks the help of fans and clubs throughout the EFL.

Sky Bet spokesman Sandro Di Michele said: “The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal is a cause we’ve worked closely with for nearly four years and we’re always impressed by the swell of support we see from EFL clubs and their fans.

“To be in a position where we can raise a huge amount of money for such a worthwhile cause and pay our respects to those who have served our country is an honour.”

The Royal British Legion’s Ben France said: “We're grateful to Sky Bet for supporting the Legion through the shirt auctions and to the football league community who each year dig deep and donate to the Poppy Appeal.

“The Legion’s work is made possible thanks to the public’s generous support and the money raised from the auction will help us provide support to the Armed Forces community wherever it’s needed.”
