Brilliant unique opportunity for Toon fans to own official replica Newcastle United Championship winning medals – but the auction ends today at 5pm!
To raise money for charity, Skybet have paid for and donated exact replicas of the medals Newcastle players were presented with after winning the Championship.
There were 24 medals put up for auction and at the minute, after being up for bids the whole of this past week, 14 of them have increased by less than £40 on their original minimum bid price!
Once again, the football club have failed to support their own charity for some unfathomable reason, with no publicity given to the auction – meaning very few bids have been made.
If you look at the auction bids with only hours to go, whilst some of the medals have bids of over £200, some of the others have increased by only £14 on their original £114 reserve.
The Newcastle United Foundation online auction will produce cash to help local people via various projects and you can view the medals and/or bid HERE
