Blades charity efforts benefit worthy causes

3 December 2014

United have made two presentations which benefitted worthy causes.

Following the Movember Prostate Cancer Awareness week, the Blades auctioned off the match ball from the local derby against Barnsley, which raised £501.

A cheque on behalf of the Movember Foundation was collected by Jonathan Davies, owner of Sheffield barbers Savills Barbers, and bespoke British Fashion Designer, John Lancaster.

Also pictured handing over the cheque, and sporting their own Movember growths, are the Blades' Managing Director Mal Brannigan (inside left) and Commercial Executive, Liam Robinson (left).

Meanwhile, United worked with local company and friend of the Club, Pinders, to create a huge giant poppy on the Kop at the Barnsley game, following which all the 18 special poppy shirts worn by the players that day were auctioned off on eBay.

The generosity of Blades fans meant that £5,000 was raised from the sale of the shirts which was presented to the Royal British Legion.
