Ebay Auction Raises £8,500
Toon fans raised thousands of pounds for Newcastle United Foundation as part of the end of season online auction.
The Newcastle United memorabilia was listed on the Foundation’s official eBay store from the end of May, sold over a four week period and netting an impressive £8,500. The most popular item was Aleksandar Mitrović signed home shirt, raising £324.
One of the slightly more unusual items auctioned was a lifesize cut out of Tim Krul, which found a home in the Leckenby household!
Newcastle United Foundation Fundraising Officer said: “We really appreciate the players donating the items to our auction and would like to thank all of the supporters who have helped us raise such a fantastic amount by bidding on eBay. We’ve loved seeing all the pictures you’ve shared on social media when you received your parcels!
“The funds raised will support delivery of our programmes, which engage with almost 50,000 across Newcastle, North Tyneside, Gateshead and Northumberland every year.”
