A few weeks ago, OSC were auctioning some signed jerseys for this season’s charity – Ospreys in the Community and their partnership with Action for Children.
Our Chairman was VERY excited to be contacted by a certain Mrs J, enquiring whether we would like to have a few pieces of her husband’s training gear, to raise money for a charity of our choice. 😍
A rendezvous was arranged and the exchange was made. Four huge bags full of kit exchanged for the wide eyed wonderment and mild shock of our Chair, Grant Berni. 👀
The sizable haul, which he just about managed to squeeze into his car (among the usual bikes, guitars, OSC paraphernalia, etc) includes jackets, training shirts, shorts, training bags, socks and much more.
None of the pieces are signed, but they do come with a certificate of authenticity. ✅
We deliberated on how to use the kit to raise money for the charity and benefit children and young people from across the region, and it was decided that Ospreys supporters should have the first opportunity to buy these items for themselves.
So, pop along to The Riverside over the next couple of home games, where we will be displaying and selling all manner of Ospreys training gear, donated by the:
- World record holder for International caps
- Four times British and Irish Lions tourist
- Lions and Wales International Captain and
- Ospreys legend of legends…..
Only, Mr ALUN WYN JONES, himself! 😎
The sale will run from 6pm to 7.15pm and again, post match. Above is a selection of what will be on offer. There’s more. Much more! 😍
OSC would like to extend a huge ‘THANKYOU’ to Alun Wyn and Anwen for their outstanding generosity in arranging this and donating all the gear. A fantastic gesture which ensures that Ospreys supporters can get themselves an item to treasure from a true legend, whilst benefitting and supporting our youth.
Diolch yn fawr! 🖤
