ArtificialGrass.com boosts charity fundraiser with signed Liverpool shirt
Published: 18 July, 2014
ArtificialGrass.com has supported charity fundraising efforts by donating a Liverpool football shirt signed by captain Steven Gerrard.
The company donated the prize to the Darlington branch of MKM, which has been raising money for Cancer Research and St Teresa's Hospice during the World Cup. The signed football shirt raised £300 for the charities through a silent auction.
Danny English of MKM Darlington, said: "We’re delighted with the football shirt ArtificialGrass.com has donated and the £1,200 total it has helped us to raise for these great causes.
"The item has been a real talking point and attracted high bids from football fans, including winner Gary Fitzgerald, who is a regular customer of ours and was keen not to miss out on this rare opportunity to own a signed Steven Gerrard shirt.
"We also held a number of raffles and a sweep stake throughout the tournament for our chosen charities, which we fundraise for during every major international football competition."
Pete Toghill, commercial director at ArtificialGrass.com said his company were pleased the contribution made such an impact: "We are always happy to lend our support to worthwhile causes and to the fundraising efforts of the companies we work alongside."
