Albion in the Community (AITC) is auctioning a total of 20 different items to help raise vital funds for the charity’s award winning work. The proceeds from the auction will help AITC continue to deliver important community projects that help local people in Sussex.

The auction includes a wide range of must-have Albion items, that range from signed shirts and programmes to even an autographed life size cardboard cut-out of Bobby Zamora. 

Additionally, Albion fans can get their hands on Steven Alzate’s and Alexis Mac Allister’s match-worn and signed boots, as well as a chair from the dugout of the Amex Stadium.

Mark Barkaway, who heads up fundraising for AITC explained the importance of the auction and how it will help the charity support local people. 

“As a charitable organisation, raising funds through our campaigns, events and auctions like this are essential to help us continue the vital work we do. All money raised from this auction will go directly to help those in the Sussex community who need the charity’s help the most, especially those who are currently recovering from the impact of the pandemic on their lives.

We are extremely grateful for the kit donations from players and are looking forward to giving fans the opportunity to get their hands on a unique piece of Albion memorabilia whilst supporting the charity at the same time.”

The Albion Auction is already underway and will conclude on Sunday 5 September.
