To raise funds for the club’s Food for Christmas campaign, Stockport County is auctioning off ten unique items for supporters to buy.
One-of-a-kind items for supporters to buy include signed mementos from the club’s 2018/19 title-winning season, and items from the Edgeley Park grounds for those fans who have missed being able to watch the action this year due to Covid-19.
All proceeds from the auction will go to Stockport County’s Food for Christmas charity campaign and could be the perfect Christmas present for yourself, or a club supporter in your life.
The ten lots available to bid for are:

Further information about the items, and how to bid can be found of the Stockport County website.
Through the auction, Stockport County is aiming to reach its £220,000 fundraising target for its Food for Christmas campaign. With free school meals not provided during the two-week Christmas holidays, an estimated 7,500 children in Stockport could go without enough food during the break. Money raised will be used to provide food vouchers for families across the borough during the festive season.
Club owner Mark Stott said of the campaign:
This is a topic very close to my heart, growing up my mum relied on free school meals for both myself and my sister and it is devastating to think so many families will struggle over the Christmas period. I’d like to thank Marcus Rashford and everyone else who has campaigned and raised awareness on the subject.
We appreciate it’s been a difficult and uncertain time for lots of people this year but I’d like to call on all our fans and corporate sponsors, who find themselves in a more fortunate position to make a donation, anything they can afford, however large or small it all helps towards our goal of giving these families a Christmas to look forward to.”
Mark has personally donated £100,000 to the Food for Christmas campaign and the Club hopes to raise the remainder through a combination of Club Shop sales, corporate sponsors and donations from fans, as well as through the charity auction.
