Charities we have helped 

Over the years Bid4Sport has supported many Charities here are just a few of them.....

The Prince's Trust

Charity Registration No. 1079675

We raised funds for Halliwells Corperate Challenge in 2008 with autographed pieces of memorabilia who then we donated the proceeds to The Prince's Trust, Donna Wilson who organised our involvement  worked tirelessly and we hope our involment helped towards the Prince's trust's aim. The Prince's trust help disadvantaged young people in the UK to change their lives and get into work, education or training. This year, The Trust aims to support 58,000 vulnerable young people, helping to give them the skills and confidence to find a job. We cannot do this without your vital support.


Peggy and Friends, the child amputee charity were our first charity partners, but we're delighted to have worked with a wide range of fantastic causes in the last 18 months. Providing a free platform to raise both profile and vital funds via designated auctions.

 


"William Hardy Trust"

 

Bid4sport are delighted to team up with England legend Alan Shearer and the players of Newcastle United to help a very special young man. 


William Hardy is a soccer mad lad, who sadly lost three of his limbs to meningitis. Needing to raise money to purchase artificial limbs a special trust fund had been set up. This trust is supported by the Newcastle United players who had helped to raise as much money as possible for the William Hardy Trust. The first of these donations was an Alan Shearer's match worn shirt from the 2002/3 season game versus Liverpool in which he also scored. This was won by Bid4sport member Lynne Clarke and the great Alan Shearer himself presented her with the shirt on the pitch at St James before the Southampton match, in front of 52,193 supporters! 


With the help of the Newcastle United players, official player sites and bid4sport members we've been able to raise well over £3,000 to date for William.

KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE BALL

 

Keep Your Eye on the Ball is a campaign aimed at raising awareness of testicular cancer within football clubs and their supporters. Testicular cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer amongst young men aged between 18 and 35, and the recent cases of Alan Stubbs and Neil Harris brought the message home that football is not immune from the disease. However, thanks to research conducted by The Institute of Cancer Research and everyman, 96% of cases can now be successfully treated if diagnosed early enough.

Keep Your Eye on the Ball is backed by the FA and PFA, and Simon "Shakey" Shakeshaft is providing auction items to Bid4sport to help raise funds for our vital work. Simon suffered from testicular cancer and is actively campaigning to ensure men know the symptoms, check themselves regularly and aren't embarassed to seek medical advice. We are very grateful to Simon and Bid4sport for their support to our campaign.

Bid4sport were also delighted to assist Matthew Le Tissier in his fundraising efforts for the Geoff Smith Charity Fund with the record breaking auction of his signed shirt that raised an amazing £2,000. The photo below shows the presentation of the cheque.

"I was delighted to receive the £2000 cheque from Bid4sport which was donated to the Geoff Smith Charity Fund. The Geoff Smith Charity Fund is very dear to me because Geoff is my close friend - an ardent Saints fan who supplied the laughing juice for the players lounge at the Dell. He has MS and raises funds to help fellow MS sufferers. He also had the benefit of Geoff's services when drinks were needed for his parties and barbecues at home. Oh I could go on and tell you a lot more but you wouldn't believe half of it!!! Seriously though I would once again like to thank Bid4sport for their help, generosity and 1st class service. ." 
Cheers 
Matt Le Tissier - Southampton and England International
