This month Hope House very kindly donated a signed Aston Villa shirt from the 2015-16 season, which we are going to auction off to the highest bidder.

Former company founder and avid football fan Andy Hawthorne regularly attended Villa Park with his friends and also played for a few youth teams as a boy and teenager.

Last season Aston Villa made the triumphant return to the Premiership and this season will see them take on some tough opponents, including Manchester City and Champions League Winners, Liverpool.

The signed shirt comes with a certificate of authenticity and would look great on the wall of any Villa fanatic’s home or man cave.

If you would like to bid on this piece of sporting memorabilia you can head over to our online auction here – The auction will start Monday 12th August at 12pm and run for two weeks.

All proceeds raised will go to our 12 months of charity cause where all through 2019 we have been raising money for five local charities including; Hope House, Severn Hospice, Lingen Davies, Compton care and Jayne Sargent Foundation.
