Poppy shirts being auctioned this week

Put in your bids and help raise funds for Poppy Appeal

12 February 2019

The poppy-branded shirts which were worn by the Royals in our Remembrance weekend fixture with Ipswich Town are going under the hammer as part of the Sky Bet Poppy Auction.

The auction of signed memorabilia from across the EFL’s 72 member clubs is raising money for The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

18 Reading shirts, from the Sky Bet Championship fixture on 10th December, are being auctioned on the CharityStars website.

Sky Bet’s relationship with the British Legion now spans five seasons, with over £350,000 raised, thanks the help of fans and clubs throughout the EFL.

The Royal British Legion’s Ben France said: “As the Centenary of the First World War comes to a close, the Royal British Legion is asking the nation to say Thank You to the First World War generation, who served, sacrificed and changed our world forever.

“With the auction of the 2018 poppy shirts, we’re hugely grateful for the continuing support of our partners Sky Bet and the clubs of the English Football League. Through the incredible generosity of the fans, we will ensure today’s Armed Forces and their families receive the support they need, and their unique contribution is never forgotten.”
