Generous Titans fans have poured in another $7000 to aid the bushfire disaster relief after the successful Lloyds auction of the Gold Coast’s playing jerseys for the upcoming NRL Nines in Perth.
The Titans offered a unique opportunity for Gold Coast fans to be a part of the action in Perth by offering the chance for the winning bidders to have their name featured on the Gold Coast’s official Nines match jerseys to be worn during the tournament at HBF Park in Perth.
Each of the 18 playing jerseys to be worn during the Nines will now carry the name of one lucky Titans fan.
At the conclusion of the Nines, each jersey will personally signed by the Titans player who wore it during the tournament, and delivered to the winning bidder.
This special auction was run in conjunction with Lloyd’s Auctions, and $7000 will now be delivered to the Salvation Army’s Bushfire Disaster Appeal.
Titans Chief Executive Steve Mitchell thanked all bidders in the auction for supporting the Club and a worthy cause.
“The outpouring of generosity from all Australians in response to the bushfire disaster has been remarkable, and it is pleasing that Titans fans have been able to contribute in such a significant way,” Mitchell said.
“This was a fantastic initiative driven by the Titans’ playing group themselves, and the fans responded with tremendous support, and that money will now go to the Salvation Army Bushfire Relief to assist Australian families rebuild their lives.”
Senior Titan Kevin Proctor also put forward an individual donation to help the bushfire relief effort, donating his 2019 New Zealand Test jersey as an auction item through Lloyds Auctions.
