Bolton Wanderers help raise £3,801 for Poppy Appeal 2017

14 March 2018

Bolton Wanderers are pleased to announce that special signed shirts worn by the Whites squad for Bolton's Remembrance Day fixture against Norwich City helped raise £3,801 for The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal 2017.

The Trotters proudly wore the poppy-embroidered jerseys at their Remembrance fixture against Norwich City at the start of November, showing their support for serving members of the Armed Forces, as well as veterans of all ages and their families.

With a bucket collection also in place outside Macron Stadium on the day, Wanderers auctioned off the signed match-worn shirts from the game, as well as remaining shirts from last season's Remembrance fixture against Peterborough United.

A total of £,2778 was raised from the auction of the Poppy Shirts, bringing the total amount raised for The Poppy Appeal 2017 to £3,801.

Bolton Wanderers would to thank every supporter who donated at the Norwich City fixture in November 2017 and/or placed a bid for the match-worn poppy shirts on the club's eBay page.

The money raised enables The Royal British Legion in continuing to support The Armed Forces Community, including serving British Armed Forces, veterans and their families.
