Almost £1,000 was raised for Scunthorpe's Lindsey Lodge Hospice through an online auction of exclusive football shirts in April. 

The limited edition shirts in our Cool Navy and Molten Orange colours were worn by Scunthorpe United players at our British Steel Family Day earlier in the year.

 Deputy CEO Paul Martin said: “We’re proud our limited edition shirts helped raise such a significant amount of money for a charity close to a lot of hearts in the Scunthorpe community.

 “We’re also pleased to have given the opportunity to Scunthorpe United fans to purchase a piece of the club’s history, which will hopefully be passed down within families for generations.”

 Lindsey Lodge Hospice provides free of charge specialist care to people in North Lincolnshire with any progressive life-limiting illness, and supports their family and carers during illness and into bereavement.
