Test Ripple

444Following the success of our charity auction in January for a matchday mascot package at the FA Cup fourth round clash against Blackburn Rovers, West Ham United are delighted to announce that we are repeating the event for our fifth round replay against Bolton Wanderers.

The auction is again being held to raise money to help the family of Ian Jackson, a long-serving and loyal member of staff at Upton Park who tragically died recently, leaving a wife and three young children.

We are offering all Hammers fans the chance to contribute towards a worthy cause and provide a young relative or friend with an unforgettable occasion by bidding for this fantastic prize.

The winner will enjoy all the regular privileges of being a matchday mascot - a full replica kit, the chance to meet Alan Pardew and the players before the match, and the thrill of leading the team out at a packed Boleyn Ground for our FA Cup replay against Bolton on Wednesday, March 15. Our winning mascot will also receive a personalised memento of their day.

The auction is open to bids now, with a starting price of £100, and will close at precisely 5.00pm on Thursday, March 2, 2006. The highest bid submitted before that deadline will win the auction. To submit your bid simply complete the form below (All bids must be in multiples of £10.00).
