Baggies aid Haiti appeal goal
West Bromwich Albion players had DEC Haiti Appeal emblazoned across their chests during the league match against Newcastle United on Monday 18 January. Baggies chair Jeremy Peace said the club felt it was an opportunity to play a part in helping to raise cash. Up to 200,000 people may have died in the earthquake but the full figure is not known. The 18 shirts worn by the West Brom squad will now be auctioned off after the match to raise more funds. (Via the BBC) Hopefully other teams will find ways of pitching in to this vital cause, if you'll pardon the lamentable pun.
