CHARITY: Keepers unite to raise money for MNDA

5 April 2017

Collin, Crocombe and Gillespie join forces for Tony Hopper

Former-Blues and Workington keeper Adam Collin returns to Brunton Park with Notts County this weekend and he has cast aside team rivalries to support his friend and ex-team mate Tony Hopper as he looks to raise vital funds for Motor Neuron Disease research.

Big Ad, as he’s known round these parts, will be donating his match shirt and gloves [all items signed] from the game, for a prize draw, with tickets available from our sellers around the ground on the day (please note, draw tickets are available NOW from the Ticket Office and from the Blues Store).

United keepers Mark Gillespie and Max Crocombe will also be donating their signed match day gloves for this fantastic prize draw!

Adam Collin said: “As soon as I heard that Tony had been diagnosed with MND I wanted to do something to help. The signed match shirt is going to go up for auction [details to follow] with the gloves included as part of this weekend’s prize draw.

“It’s no surprise at all that Mark and Max have donated their gloves because they’re both great lads and I know they want to help Tony as much as I do.

“I would also like to thank Ewan [Wood] from the Lottery Department because he has donated a signed Carlisle United shirt as well, which is fantastic.

“Hopefully the draw will raise a nice sum of money for the MNDA.”

Prize Draw prizes:

+ Match day keeper gloves signed by Adam Collin
+ Match day keeper gloves signed by Max Crocombe
+ Match day keeper gloves signed by Mark Gillespie
+ Carlisle United first team shirt signed by the United squad

Tickets cost only £1 – please support this fantastic cause.

Tickets will be on sale for this prize draw at our Open Door event on Tuesday 11 April, with the draw taking place on Wednesday 12 April.

CUSG chairman Simon Clarkson has asked for volunteers to help to sell tickets for this draw on Saturday. If you can spare some of your time for this great cause please meet at the West Stand Main Reception at 1.30pm on the day, where you will be given tickets to sell and an area of the ground to cover.
