Millwall Football Club is elated to announce that a record-breaking £19,318.92 was raised for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal during the period of Remembrance – and there is more to come!
An incredible £11,116.99 was donated by Lions fans during the day of the Derby fixture alone through bucket collections, poppy and badge sales, while a further £8,201.93 has been generated from the club’s range of related merchandise.
The total above does not even include the additional money to come from the auction of match-worn shirts from the club’s Remembrance fixtures. The figure raised so far stands at £5,396 but the auctions are still live and will be until Sunday 28th November. If you are yet to place a bid you can do so by clicking here.
The club would like to pay tribute to Millwall supporters for once again showcasing their extraordinary generosity. These sums are incredible and everyone connected with the club couldn’t be prouder of what fans have achieved during this year’s campaign. Thank you.
This all wouldn’t have been possible without the outstanding efforts of Lions fan Mel Bingham, who co-ordinates the fundraising year after year and who has excelled herself once more. As well, the club is immensely grateful to Micky Simpson for his huge contribution in arranging the Remembrance Day fixture commemorations.
The club is thankful also to the MSC for supplying a wreath for the on-pitch ceremony and to all those who helped carry out the bucket collections and badge sales around the ground before, during and after the Derby game, including the Service Personnel who contributed to an unforgettable day on and off the pitch.
