This is the time for Auction! Great memorabilia up for grabs

Get your hands on fantastic sporting items before Christmas

11 December 2017

With Christmas almost upon us, why not let Dons Trust fundraisers Paul Jeater and Ray Armfield tempt you into buying a few last-minute gifts?

The annual Silent Auction concludes on Saturday in the main bar at the Wigan game, but you can get your bids in now. Simply e-mail essexwomble@aol.com with your details, the number of the item, and how much you want to bid. Online bidding will close at 11.59 on Friday, before the auction's final countdown in the main bar! 

Silent auctions have raised over £40,000 for the Dons Trust since their inception and once again the auction team have been busy sourcing a wide range of sporting memorabilia. As well as fantastic AFCW and Wimbledon FC memorabilia, personally signed items from current boxing champion Anthony Joshua, F1 legend Jenson Button, 1966 World Cup winners Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters, plus England cricket stars Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali and Jonny Bairstow, all feature.
