I'm Fond Of My (Villa) Balls

I'm Fond Of My (Villa) Balls

Right

Following the auction article: Villa Shirt To Auction - Click Here

I have decided to add a couple of my treasures to raise more money for this cause: In loving memory of Sarah - Click Here

The club have very kindly donated the following:

One XL Villa shirt signed by the current squad.
One Villa scarf.
One Villa enamel badge (which I have to be honest, I nearly nicked, I do like my badges !)
Two Villa pens.
One Villa keyring.
One Villa crest.
And a partridge in a pear tree (I've had two of the pears)



The bids stand at:

£25 for the keyring!!! Rocky7 (From Vital Arsenal)
£20 for a pen Gordonsleftboot
£10 for a pen IanRobo
£10 for the badge IanRobo
£10 for the crest IanRobo
£20 for the scarf PENFOLD17

£150 for the shirt - Steve64k

(auction still open if you want to increase any offers!)

NOW to be added

I am willing to offer up:

My signed by Dennis Mortimer DVD of Aston Villa - Champions Of Europe 1982.

+ if a bid of £100 or more comes in, a ball signed by the Villa team (2004) AND with Dennis Mortimers signature on it. As I say, I'm fond of this Villa ball, been an ornament in my lounge since putting in the winning bid at a Shareholders Association event, so I'll only let it go if we get a good enough bid!

Also now added, with thanks to Ash, is a mint condition 1982 European cup final programme. I'm sure I can twist the arm of Sir Dennis of Mortimer to sign it for the winner, so lets have bids over £50 added in the article comments below!

I think the auctions for all the above will need to be ended on Friday 23rd of March so we can get the funds to DeanoVilla to pass on to Birmingham Heartlands

DeanoVilla said: I'm going to spend the weekend totalling up all donations and getting a cheque made out to the Heartlands Hospital to present to them, looking like it could be around the 2k mark which would be brilliant! Thanks guys for all your messages of support, it still doesn't seem real to me, but its great having friends, family and internet buddies around me. Spoke to the head physio at the hospital last week and she was saying these new nebulisers are like gold dust, so if we could provide 3 that would be incredible. Thanks for your support - DeanoVilla

Further donations can be sent via:

Paypal - dean_stanbury@yahoo.co.uk - or to be more official the funeral directors:

Another item has kindly been offered for the auction we are holding. This is a mint condition 1982 European cup final programme. I'm sure I can twist the arm of Sir Dennis of Mortimer to sign it for the winner, so I'll add this to the sticky article at the top and bids over £50 can be put in the article comments.
