City's match-worn poppy shirts raise £5,627

6 February 2019

Poppy shirts worn by Norwich City players in their win over Millwall have raised over £5,000 through the Sky Bet Poppy Auction.

The auction of signed memorabilia from across the EFL’s 72 member clubs was held to raise money for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

Twenty-two Norwich shirts from the fixture on November 10 were auctioned on the CharityStars website, with a total of £5,627 raised.

Teemu Pukki scored the match winning goal in City’s 4-3 victory against Millwall, and the forward’s shirt raised a magnificent £800 for the cause.

Sky Bet’s relationship with the British Legion now spans five seasons, with over £350,000 raised thanks to the help of fans and clubs throughout the EFL. The total raised so far from the Poppy Auction stands at £53,660.

Ben France, from the Royal British Legion, said: “With the auction of the 2018 poppy shirts, we’re hugely grateful for the continuing support of our partners Sky Bet and the clubs of the English Football League. Through the incredible generosity of the fans, we will ensure today’s armed forces and their families receive the support they need, and their unique contribution is never forgotten.”
