Messi shirt raises £400 for NHS
After announcing that Football Prizes will be donating 100% of profits to the NHS, we are delighted to say that we saw a fantastic response in helping to raise funds for such a wonderful cause.
Our first competition to qualify for this was the signed Lionel Messi shirt, with a second place prize also available. Entries were £5 with every penny of profit being donated to the NHS, with winners being announced live on Friday 17th April at the Football Prizes Facebook Page
Google Random Number Generator was used to determine the two winners in the competition with Andy Livingstone winning second prize (his choice of any Premier League or Football League home shirt), while Scott Colliar’s lucky number 30 scooped the top award!
In total, £400 was raised for the NHS through this competition!
“I entered the draw because I saw it was raising funds for the NHS. To actually win a signed Messi shirt was a huge shock! Thank you so much!” – Scott Colliar, Signed Lionel Messi Barcelona shirt winner
Second prize in the competition – any Premier League or Football League 2019/20 home shirt – was won by Andrew Livingstone.
The Leeds United fan, who lives in Hereford, chose the shirt of his beloved Elland Road club.
On receiving the prize, he said: “Thanks once again and congrats to the other prize winners! [You’re] Top guys for raising money for our NHS heroes.”
Football Prizes are delighted to announce that 100% of profits on prizes taking place during lock-down will be donated to the NHS and other local charities (specified clearly in each competition).
After much discussions at FP HQ, we have decided that from the Lionel Messi signed shirt onwards, all profits should go towards these causes.
We believe we are going through unprecedented times, and that everyone needs to come together as one.
So we hope that people will still have the chance to win amazing prizes, and also donate to a good cause at the same time.
This will run throughout the whole of lock down, however long that will last.
After this period we will look to revert back to a % of profits being donated to that individual clubs Foundation.
We thank everyone for their continued support of football prizes through this time.
