Birmingham City F.C Diamond Partners No5 Barristers’ Chambers have teamed up with 4 local charities to launch their ‘Get Shirty’ Campaign.
The four charities involved in the initiative are Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Citizen Aid, Cure Leukaemia and St. Basils. No5 are giving fans the opportunity to get involved and decide who they would like to see on the back of the Blues 1st team shirt for the Wolves match on December 2nd.
Head to the Blues Twitter page HERE and use the voting poll to select Cure Leukaemia, plus 50p per vote will also be kindly donated by No5 towards the charity fund.
Various advertising rights around the stadium will also be donated by No5 meaning the winning charity will appear on the pitchside LED boards, on the Big Screen and in the matchday programme.
Ian Dutton, Head of Commercial said “We are delighted to be working alongside No5 Barristers’ Chambers to deliver what should be a fantastic campaign in support of four great causes. Donating their back of shirt sponsorship and matchday branding is very generous of No5 and will help provide some valuable exposure for the winning charity.
I would like to encourage all supporters to head to our Twitter page and get involved in the vote!”
Tony McDaid, Chief Executive and Director of Clerking at No5 Barristers’ Chambers said: “Following on from the success of last season’s campaign where we donated our back of shirt sponsorship to Headway, we decided with there being so many amazing charities who deserve to have their logo emblazoned on the back of the Blues shirt, that we hand this difficult decision over to the fans to cast their vote.
I marvel at the fantastic efforts of Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Citizen Aid, Cure Leukaemia and St Basils do within our local community. I look forward to working together with the Blues to raise as much exposure and funds for each of these great causes as possible.”
As well as providing one charity with this excellent opportunity, No5 will also be hosting a fundraising evening prior to the match here at St. Andrew’s in our Legends Lounge. The event will take place on Wednesday 29th November with a Blues vs Wolves theme.
Former Blues and Wolves legends (TBA) will be present at the event providing insight in to their careers as well as a preview on the upcoming fixture. In addition, there will be a Wolves vs Blues mastermind style quiz taking place! The Blues Legends plus 2 No5 Barristers will be going head to head with their Wolves counterparts live on stage. BCFC will then open up to an audience quiz round with some fantastic prizes for the winning table!
