CHARITY fundraiser Rebecca Goding is auctioning a rare West Ham United signed team photograph for Barnardo’s.
The 33-year-old from the Premier club’s home turf at Upton Park is putting the Hammers’ print under the hammer for cash for the long-established East London children’s charity.
She’s pledged to raise £3,000 as part of the Husky Trail’ challenge, a 200-mile Arctic Circle trek taking her through northern Scandinavia’s forests, mountains and across frozen lakes in March over six gruelling days.
The high quality 10ins by 12 photograph—which pictures Marlon Harewood, Yossi Benayoun, Shaun Newton, Bobby Zamora, Nigel Reo-Coker and Hayden Mullins—has been signed by the 2005-06 Premiership team, as well as Olympic champ Tessa Sanderson.
Rebecca, a publicist for Barnardo’s at Barkingside near Gant’s Hill, Ilford, said: “I was given the photograph during a visit to the training ground a couple of years ago when I worked for Newham Council.
“A few photos were being signed and I was given one as a memento. Now I think it’s time to pass it on for a good cause—and make someone’s Christmas happy.”
Rebecca’s auction on ebay between December 8 and 14 also includes a signed copy of Russell Brand’s latest book Articles of Faith.
She has a lot of faith in her Arctic trek raising cash for Barnardo’s and hopes to tap sponsors and donationsonline.
