Shea returns to aid appeal

26 June 2015

Campaign receives a boost from number one

James Shea wasted no time getting behind our campaign for War Child and the AFC Wimbledon Foundation after today returning from a holiday in Spain.

Shea, who made 46 appearances during an impressive debut season for the Dons in 2014/15, is back on home soil ahead of the start of pre-season training on Monday.

And Shea was quick to pledge his support for the campaign after returning to these shores.

“I remember Oscar from War Child coming to our last game of the season and hopefully children like him will get an opportunity to start their lives,” said Shea. “It is not right that children have to learn to live with war in certain countries. 

“We take what we have over here for granted. This is a great campaign and it will give more people a chance to live a normal life. AFC Wimbledon is a family club and we want to try and help as many people as we can. This campaign shows what type of club we are.”

Our campaign asks supporters to pre-order a high-spec pair of earphones for £20 that are designed in the AFC Wimbledon colours with a War Child mic.

War Child provide life-changing support to the most vulnerable children whose families, communities and schools have been torn apart by war.

AFC Wimbledon will be sharing the profits of each pre-order 50/50 between the AFC Wimbledon Foundation and War Child.
