Corby Town assistant manager Dave Clarke is organising a fundraising auction on eBay to raise money for the Leicester Royal Infirmary during January. 

AFC Rushden & Diamonds are happy to support this fundraising by passing on the details of the auction to their fans via, using the information courtesy of the Corby Town Website.

Clarke told; “2015 was a roller coaster ride for me personally. I was diagnosed with leukaemia in September and recieved amazing treatment from the cancer ward at the Leicester Royal Infirmary. I would like to raise money for the ward so I can buy them some fitness equipment which will be used by the long term patients who are fighting their own battles with cancer.

“To do this I have asked my friends in football to provide signed football shirts. A particularly good guy Tom, the lead singer of Kasabian has also signed his own personal jacket to auction.

“The various items will be on eBay from 11th January and I hope to raise as much money as possible.”

All of the items were signed during November and December 2015 and the full list of products being auctioned includes;

  • Tom Meighan (Kasabian) personal signed jacket from their Teenage Cancer Trust gig
  • Signed Leicester City shirt by record breaker Jamie Vardy
