Regular Fan Mail (sign up via box left) readers will know that earlier this month we opened the bidding for a signed Sir Bobby Charlton England shirt which we invited you all to bid on. Every penny raised will go to the Homeless World Cup, the FSF’s nominated charity for 2008/09. This shirt is a real collectors item – and it could be yours.

Bidding is still open and after the initial flurry of activity the highest bid stands at £200. Now we reckon that this is a figure that could well be topped – this is a World Cup winner we’re talking about at the end of the day!

Email [email protected] with your name, address and bid before 5pm on Wednesday July 22nd. All bidders will be kept up to date with the highest bid so you can keep upping your offer right until the very last minute, eBay style. Bid generously as every penny helps people from all over the world take part in the Homeless World Cup.

The event which has proven its social benefits time and again with 73% of players changing their lives for the better by coming off drugs and alcohol, moving into jobs, education, homes, training, reuniting with families and even going on to become players and coaches for pro or semi-pro football teams.
