Football Shirt Friday fundraiser for Willen Hospice

Football Shirt Friday fundraiser for Willen Hospice

August 18, 2014

Headlines colleagues donned football shirts to mark the start of the new soccer season – and raise cash for Willen Hospice.

Our team were asked to make a cash donation to our Willen Hospice appeal to take part in Football Shirt Friday, which saw them wear their team’s colours in the office.

Classics on show included a 1971 Arsenal top and a Benidorm FC shirt. More than £20 was raised for the charity in total.

Tom Leech, graphic designer and sub-editor, brought in a holdall full of replica shirts so those who didn’t own one could also get involved.

He said: “It was a great idea – a lot of us here at Headlines love football and this was a nice way of raising money for Willen Hospice.”

“I’m sure we’ll be doing something similar in the near future.”
