A WORLD Cup shirt signed by the 1966 England team helped a Wrexham charity raise a record amount of money.
Wrexham Breathe-Easy - a small charity linked to the British Lung Foundation - raised more than £1,800 on Sunday, with £1,167 raised by just four items in a charity football auction.
Auctioned were a replica 1966 England shirt signed by Geoff Hurst, Jack Charlton, George Cohen, Ray Wilson, Roger Hunt, Alan Ball, Nobby Stiles, Martin Peters and Gordon Banks.
The charity also received an Argentina shirt signed by Diego
Maradona, a seat-back from the old Wembley Stadium signed by Geoff Hurst and a signed photograph of Pele from the 1970 World Cup.
All four lots were given to Breathe-Easy by Our Price, who strike deals to offer authentic signed movie, music and sporting memorabilia to charities.
At auction in the Queens Head in Bradley the England shirt made £675, the Wembley seat
£560 and the Maradona shirt and Pele picture each made £550.
In total £2,335 was raised. Under the deal Our Price received half the money as a commission on the items.
'This is the biggest amount of money we have ever raised in one event and we will definitely do this again,' said auction organiser Eileen Langley.
'I want to thank everyone who got involved.'
