The Trust has been donated several items which we plan to auction off to raise funds for the Chris Chilton family to help with ongoing care costs. The Trust has already donated £422 to the appeal and this forms the 3rd stage of our support as detailed in our original article.
The first item is a signed, framed caricature of Chris Chilton.
The caricature was drawn by famous film director and City fan Mark Herman (Brassed Off, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas) for musician & fellow City fan Henry Priestman (The Christians) and has a dedication from Chris Chilton to Henry.
We will be accepting bids via Direct Message to our Twitter & Facebook accounts, as well as by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a reserve on the item of £60.
The auction will close at midnight on 23rd December so the item can be secured for Christmas. We will contact the highest bidder to arrange payment which will need to be received before delivery.
We would like to thank Henry for his kind donation. We would also ask that if anyone else has an item they think would generate some funds towards the appeal that they would be willing to donate to contact the Trust via email or social media. Thank you.
