**THIS AUCTION IS NOW CLOSED**
The World Cup starts on Friday 20th September and rugby fever is due to set in with 20 countries from across the world taking part. As Kicking Off Against Cancer is based in the rugby mad nation of Wales and with sport being a big part of what we do here, we simply had to do something to mark the occasion!
Our trustee Rob has worked hard to secure, what we think you will agree are some unbelievable items for any rugby fan. Managing to get fully signed Rugby World Cup Shirts from the squads of Wales, Ireland and England. Now we want to give our supporters the opportunity to purchase these highly desirable items in the form of an online auction that will run for the duration of the World Cup.
- Item 1 – Wales Rugby shirt signed by the World Cup squad
- Item 2 – Ireland Rugby shirt signed by their World Cup squad.
- Item 3 – England Rugby Shirt signed by their World Cup squad
As of the end of the auction, 7pm Friday 08 November, the winning bids are as follows:
- Signed Wales shirt – £500.00
- Signed Ireland shirt – £400.00
- Signed England shirt – £1,400.00
The format is similar to the football merchandise auction we ran recently. Simply fill out the online form below to make your bid and we’ll be in touch to let you know if you are currently the highest bidder or not. In case of a World cup celebratory hangover, we are extending the auction period slightly beyond the end of the tournament, giving you until the Friday after to get your bids in. The auction will close on 8 November at 7pm. Remember the money we raise from all events that we organise will be spent helping those that have been diagnosed with cancer have some respite from their treatments, and give them a precious chance to make memories that can last a lifetime. You can see the type of experience we can offer people over in our causes section.
