Advice Needed - Signed Shirt for Charity

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I am after a bit of help.

I was meant to be running the 2019 London Marathon for Barnardo's Children Charities but unfortunately I have had to defer my entry until 2020 now as I have a slipped disc.

Lee Bullen was kind enough to get the players to sign me a shirt to help with fundraising, which I was going to auction at a Charity night.

This will now not be until next year but I want to sell the shirt now as I feel it will be worth more whilst shirt is current and before some/all of the 15 out of contract players leave.

 

I want it to fetch as much money as possible and add it to my current fundraising (which is all rolling over to the 2020 marathon). I bought the shirt at full price (club wouldn't give a discount) but I want to make it clear I will NOT be taking this money off the total. All money raise will go to Barnardo's.

 

What do people think will raise the most money? A simple auction on eBay (fee's apply) or selling raffle tickets for say £5 on here and across facebook etc.

 

I would really appreciate you thoughts and advice.

 

Thanks

Selling Raffle tickets on social media may come under the jurisdiction of the laws on gambling. I should check on the gambling commission website. 

 

Also, I'd be inclined to hold onto the shirt a month or so, see if the play offs are attainable. May increase the value.

Yeah, we'll never get in the playoffs.

 

Anyway @OwlerTom , eBay is the easiest way to go, only issue being fees.

Grow a pair kid, we don't all have this roll over and play dead attitude. Stick a saddle on Dobbin, hitch yer cart up and enjoy the ride.
