Foundation ‘United As One’ EBay Auction Raises £8,000
Newcastle United Foundation is delighted to announce the special ‘United As One’ eBay auction has raised more than £8,000 for the charity.
This phenomenal sum will be put towards Foundation community programmes across Newcastle, Gateshead, Northumberland and North Tyneside.
United fans came out in force to support the Foundation by bidding on home shirts worn by the players in the 3-1 victory over Southampton.
The shirts featured the new black and white solidarity ribbon which represents the ‘United as One’ campaign promoting diversity and inclusion looking towards ending discrimination in football and in society.
Shirts worn by players such as Miguel Almirón and Salomón Rondón started a series of bidding wars between the United faithful, raising an unbelievable sum for the charity.
Caroline Brown, Events Manager at Newcastle United Foundation, said: “I want to say a massive thank you to all the fans who supported this special auction, and to the club and players for generously donating their match worn ‘United As One’ shirts.
“We raised an exceptional amount and these funds will make a real difference to some of the most disadvantaged people in our community.”
