    Anyone want to buy a pair?

    You may have seen the chap auctioning them on the OOCC Facebook page, to raise money for Jessica and Liam aged 11 & 10. They are brother and sister from Scotland who are fighting life limiting conditions. Jessica is now in a hospice and is unlikely to survive much into the new year, Liam isn’t expected to live very long after that.

    I won the boots with the highest bid but it’s not really my thing. So I want to sell them on and any money I raise, I will also donate to Jessica and Liam to help give them one last memorable Christmas together.

    I have got to know the chap who set up the auction since winning. He is one of life’s good guys; tirelessly fundraising for the kids while his wife is undergoing cancer treatment and his brother is also in hospice with little time left. He really is a top bloke.

    Anyway, Jessica and Liam are football crazy so I’d also like to send them some City memorabilia. I’m sure the good people of the OOCC won’t let me down.

    So, anyone want Whyte’s boots? Any offers gratefully received, no minimum limit.

    Anyone have a old city memorabilia they don’t want / need that can be sent to the kids?

    Also, any goodwill messages to the kids that I can pass on to hopefully lift their spirits a bit? Regardless of what team you support, it’s for things like this that football comes together.

    This was the Facebook thread in question, @Glos Blue came in immediately with an incredibly generous bid of £200 that went unbested, the guy who organised the auction was beside himself with gratitude to GlosBlue and rightly so, this is what earned Glos his "Forum Legend" banner :aya::thumbup:

    That story breaks my heart. How does anyone live through their kids being terminally ill before 12 along with their Mrs having cancer at the same time.

    Absolutely tragic.

    Well done to Gavin Whyte and @Glos Blue

    Restores my faith in humans a bit does that.

    Is there a link just to donate to the family at all?

    That's bloody nice of you Arf, I'm sure if you respond to Stuart on the Facebook post I posted in this thread he'll be more than happy to sort that out I'm sure :thumbup:
