Charity auction

This signed, match worn shirt was given to Northern Rock by Shola Ameobi to auction off in last year's annual Christmas charity auction in aid of CHUF (Children's Heart Unit Fund).

I was lucky enough to win the shirt and have made the very difficult decision to put it up for auction in aid of the 2 charities. I love Newcastle United and I love collecting memorabilia but parting with this treasured item seems like the right thing to do if 2 local charities can benefit greatly from it.

Please bid generously folks and rest assured that ALL PROCEEDS from the sale of this shirt will be split equally between St Benedict's Hospice (Charity No. 1019410) and The Children's Foundation (Charity No. 1000013). That's exactly how we like to do our fundraising at Run Geordie Run!

Also included is the original brochure from Northern Rock's auction with details of this lot.

Howay the bids!!!!
