Following an excellent day’s golf and dining organised by W.Bro David Eager there was a very poignant auction item for a framed Charlton Athletic F.C. football shirt which had been brought along by David’s son, Cliff Eager.

Cliff outlined that this shirt was a one off design worn by all the players for a league match following the sad death of Police Constable Keith Palmer who was on duty when the terror attack took place at the Houses of Parliament back in March this year.

Keith had been a Charlton season ticket holder for a number of years and this was one of the club’s tributes to him.

The player who had worn this shirt had signed it and it also bore Keith’s Police Warrant Number.

The Surrey Masonic Sports Association had agreed to match the auction figure raised which was a £500.00 bid by Julian Whiteaker, after which Kevin and Beverley Field then donated a further £250.00 making the final total raised £1500.00 for Keith’s widow and young  daughter.
