Shirt auction and ground collection help to raise a huge sumWe are proud to announce that Luton Town supporters have helped to raise a huge sum of money in aid of the Royal British Legion.
Representatives from the charity were at Kenilworth Road for our match against Accrington Stanley on the 12th November, and their bucket collection helped to raise £1063.
Winning bids from our poppy shirt (and ball) auction this year totaled £4792.28, meaning the fundraising total for this year is an incredible £5855.28!
Michael Lewis, Community Fundraiser for Bedfordshire wrote to the Club to thank supporters for their generosity: "This is a fantastic amount raised at the Poppy Shirt Auction. Thank you again for your support for the Poppy Appeal. This year has been a fantastic response from the public in Luton and Luton Town supporters in particular", he said.
Our thanks to everyone who contributed to the bucket collection or made a bid on a poppy shirt.
Our fundraising efforts now turn towards our Club charity of the year Level Trust, who's dedicated match day is on the 11th February for our match against Crawley Town. For that game, our shirts will be emblazoned with the Level Trust logo, and these highly collectible shirts will also be auctioned off after the match.
