West Ham shirt raises money

Something to warm the heart !

West Ham’s Spanish goalkeeping coach Xavi Valero is the nephew of Childline volunteer, Marie Carmen Lia.

On her recent trip to London, Xavi gave Marie Carmen a shirt signed by all West Ham’s first-team players in order that Childline Gibraltar could use it as a fundraising prize.

In a week when the ‘Hammers won their first European trophy since 1965, the shirt was auctioned online with the winning bid coming from keen West Ham fan, Mike Nicholls of Chestertons Estate Agents.

This is a little close to home for us at CandH mansions as our admin – the fab Carol Combes – has just moved to Gib with everybody’s best wishes

A spokesperson for Childline said, ‘We are grateful to Xavi for the gift of the shirt and to Mike for his generous winning bid. Chestertons are supporters of our various Quiz Nights and other fundraising events and we rely on these events, in addition to donations, so that Childline is able to provide its full range of support to children, young people and families.’

Even our shirts are “massive”. Well done Xavi, great move and thanks to the first team players for a donation we fully expect that it was sold for plenty of dough.
