Berkshire football shirt auction in aid of Launchpad Reading

The auction opens on Wednesday 21st June at 6pm

Boost their chances:

At the 2023 Berkshire Football Awards we thought we’d try something a little different to raise some valuable charity cash.

As part of the awards night on Wednesday 21st June – hosted by Sky Sports News’ Tom White at Double Barrelled Brewery in Reading – we are holding a Silent Football Shirt auction with items donated by our local clubs. We have 17 shirts available to bid on at the time of writing

It’s not just your Ascot’s, your Holyport’s and your Windsor’s thought, we’ve also got a very special set of shirts designed to help fund a Futsal tournament in the Federated State of Micronesia – if you want to know more about why we’re doing this, head here.

The silent auction will raise money for Reading homeless charity Launchpad, based in the town centre. From their website: “Launchpad is Reading’s leading homelessness prevention charity, providing vital information and support for individuals, couples and families who don’t have a stable place to live or are at risk of losing their home.

“With your support and generosity, last year we helped over 1,100 people in housing crisis in Reading to get back on their feet.”

Football in Berkshire has set the auction up with GalaBid. All you need to do to be part of it is head to and click on the ‘Register’ button.
