The kit, which includes a number of City signatures, was given to the group by Trevor Alderson, boss of Alderclad in Station Road, to help support its work.

Leaders of the club, held at Dawdon Community Centre in Queen Alexandra Road, hope enough money can be raised to take its five to 18-year-olds to a pantomime this Christmas.

Joanne Bowen, who is one of the club’s leaders, said: “The kids are thrilled with it.

“I wish we could keep it, but it’s a fantastic idea to help raise funds.

“Someone’s going to be very proud to have it for themselves.”

The shirt also features the autographs of Easington’s Adam Johnson, David Silva and Gael Clichy.

The closed auction bids can be made in person or by calling the centre on 513 1777 before Friday, December 9.

It is the latest in a line of events and efforts to boost the funds of the 218-strong club, with £10,000 raised in the last year.

It has won the support of businesses in the town including Adsa, the Duke pub, Karen’s florist, Barclays bank, along with the East Durham Area Action Partnership and Seaham Rotary Club.
