As football fans, we all know how easy it is to get lost in the commotion and excitement of the season... However, sometimes here at FootballShopOnline we think it’s important to take a step back from the beautiful game and do what we can for a worthy cause.
MacMillan Cancer Support is an organisation known across the country, providing invaluable help and support for millions of people affected by the disease. They offer medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care. Nobody should face cancer alone, so when the opportunity to help came along this September we couldn’t wait to get involved. The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. People across the UK host their own Coffee Mornings on the 25th September and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. (http://coffee.macmillan.org.uk/).
We were contacted by Metro’s Sports & Social Club in Stretford (http://www.metrossportsandsocial.com/
) to see if we were interested in making a contribution to their Coffee Morning. We felt it was a great opportunity to show our support by donating a number of our best selling products from FootballShopOnline to be auctioned off at the event.
The event proved to be a great success and we were contacted by Antonia from Metro’s Sports & Social Club soon after who wrote; ‘Thanks for the donations to the MacMillan Coffee Morning we held at our club in Stretford! I am very happy to report that we raised over £1,500 for this great cause!'
It's a great feeling to know that our local community raised so much money for such a worthy cause and any contribution that we made here at FootballShopOnline was more than welcome! We have always been open to supporting local charities and events when we can and this case was no different!
Antonia was kind enough to send us a few photos showing the happy winners of some of the auctions for the donated FootballShopOnline products.We love nothing more than seeing people sporting our products so why not tweet a photo into us (@FootballShopUK) or post on our Facebook wall (FootballShopOnlineUK) for your chance to win a special prize!
