Poppy shirts raise £11,531 for Royal British Legion


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth supporters have raised £11,531 for the Royal British Legion by bidding on match-worn poppy shirts.

Cherries shirts from the club’s Remembrance Day 2-0 victory over Newcastle United were donated to continue ongoing support for the charity.

Bids came in for the home kits – which had the poppy on as a symbol of remembrance – from more than 15 different countries, with a large contribution also coming from local fans.

Having scored the brace which secured three points, the shirt of Dominic Solanke raised the highest bid, being sold for £984.

All money raised will help make a difference to members of the armed forces, veterans, and their families by providing practical help, advice and support.

The Royal British Legion is the country’s largest armed forces charity and it is the Legion’s aim to provide lifelong support for those who have been affected - both physically and mentally - as a result of their service. You can find out more information on the RBL’s great work here.
