FUSION Nightclub has helped raise funds for Guernsey FC after donating a pair of signed football boots from QPR goal keeper Julio Cesar.
Fusion sponsored the Brazilian-born goalie last season and, as part of the sponsorship, Fusion was given a number of signed items of Julio’s QPR kit including his football boots and gloves.
Fusion owner, Adam Burroughs, is an avid QPR fan and jumped at the chance to support the team’s goalie.
“Cesar has had a fantastic career so far so I was very excited to have the opportunity to sponsor him at QPR,” he said.
“I wanted other local football fans and the local community to benefit from the opportunity too so we donated the boots to Guernsey FC for an auction to raise some money for the club.”
The winner of the auction for the signed boots was Hazel Turvey who won the boots with a £100 bid on behalf of her football-mad12-year-old son Jack.
Jack said: “I support Manchester United and I play for Rovers in Guernsey when I am in Guernsey because I am away a lot in the UK playing squash.
“I think Julio Cesar is a good player and he plays for Brazil which is cool. His feet are actually smaller than mine so I can’t wear the boots but I’ve got them on the mantel piece at home.”
The Guernsey FC auction also included a signed photo of Matt Le Tissier in the Guernsey FC kit and a Sky Sports television package.
