ONLINE AUCTION TO BOOST BRAVEHEART FUND
A Discovery Channel jersey signed by the 2007 Tour de France team, including winner Alberto Contador; the pink Giro d’Italia winner’s jersey, signed by 2007 champion Danilo Di Luca; a T-Mobile jersey signed by the entire German squad, including British star Mark Cavendish – these are among the top items to feature in the Braveheart Fund’s new online auction.
This year’s dinner and ride is on October 27, with the online auction a new innovation as the Braveheart Fund goes from strength to strength. Now in its fifth year, the Fund has raised more than £80,000 and supported more than 40 young Scottish cyclists to fulfil their ambitions.
The dinner sold out within hours of tickets going on sale, but the new online auction gives everyone the chance to purchase the kind of cycling memorabilia that always proves so popular in the auction on the night.
The main appeal is the ‘buy now’ option – for an affordable price, all the items are available to purchase immediately. Ten items are initially available, but more may be added.
This is a not to be missed opportunity not only to own a priceless piece of cycling memorabilia, but also to support the Braveheart Fund. All the money raised by the Fund goes directly to help talented young cyclists fulfil their aims and ambitions.
The Braveheart Fund was set up by former British professional champion Brian Smith in 2003 to support young Scottish cyclists with their racing and training costs. Since its inception, the Fund has raised more than £80,000 and supported over 50 cyclists.
