The latest trade came when Tony Myerscough, finance director of TDP Textiles, decided that as an avid Derby County fan, the ram’s skull was something he ‘just had to have’.
Myerscough decided to offer a football signed by legendary Sir Stanley Matthews in return, which he had personally signed many years ago when he was a young boy.
Myerscough said: “Although it’s a nice, and possibly a valuable piece of memorabilia signed by one of the true icon’s of our great game, I’m sure the Lowe boys will put it to good use in aid The Light Fund.”
The Lowe Boys added: “As you know we’ve had some unusual trades, but thanks to Tony, we’re now taking this up a level and starting to get a bit serious. The trade up challenge is now building some great momentum and we are keen to make this big.
“Do let us know if you are interested in trading for a piece of history from a footballing legend.”
The Light Fund Big Trade Up Challenge will now see the Three Sock Monkeys attempting to ‘trade up’ the signed football for a highly desirable item, which will be auctioned or sold at The Licensing Awards on Tuesday September 13th, with all proceeds going to The Light Fund and the variety of good causes that the charity supports.
