The Charlton Life Charity Match - The Valley - May 22nd 2007

On 22nd May 2007, a collection of unfit, untalented and overweight Charlton supporters will participate in one of two charity football games at the Valley, to raise funds for Demelza House.
Demelza is a fantastic children's hospice that cares for children with life-limiting illnesses, and their families.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. Demelza, Hospice Care for Children will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

We would be delighted if you could contribute in some way towards our fundraising target. All players need to raise a certain amount of sponsorship to particpate, so if you are sponsoring an individual then please mention their name in your comments. If you just wish to make a donation, then thank you very much.

*please remember to tick the gift aid box, meaning Demelza can claim the tax back on your donation*

On behalf of everyone involved, many thanks for your support.

Opportunists competitions

You might get an e-mail about an exclusive one off tshirt which used an image which looks pretty darn close to the flag on Sunday, now we know nothing about, we suspect Burro and the club know nothing about it.

We do find it strange that the day after the flag made it's debut, this appears, if there is anything produced to to with the flag, it'll be produced by Burro and the club. So we're keeping our distance from the competition.

More news on Sunday's debut, and how you can be further involved in Valley Flags for the rest of the season tomorrow.

In production and ready to go!

So this is what's being made at the moment at Billboard Posters/Augustus Martin in Bow

and part of it looks like this

and here's some info from Dave Davies who's producing it for us.

Charlton Athletic's home game on Sunday against Newcastle will also mark the latest offering from the popular 'Valley Flags' campaign. The new banner, which will begin its journey around the Valley just before kick-off, features an image of Derek 'Killer' Hales in the pose of the Cuban revolutionary, Che Guevara.

The flag, measuring 18 metres by 18 metres, printed in 8 sections, hand-stitched together and hemmed at the edges, was printed by Dave Davies at Billboard Posters/Augustus Martin, who are one of Europe's most advanced integrated screen, litho and digital printers. The company, which operates on a five-acre site in Bow, have been supplying large format print and POS material for over forty years.

"This was a great project to work on, and anything that can get the crowd going and give us that twelfth man at the moment can only be a good thing," explained Dave, a North Stand season-ticket holder.

“It was particular fun since, our premises being in East London, a fair few Hammers fans were involved in the production process. I must admit to having a couple of worried moments as the deadline approached, but they’re pros and there wasn’t any kind of sabotage,” joked Dave.

The flag, one of many more planned, will be used at all home matches until the end of the season and, if possible, one or two away games before the end of the campaign.

For more information on the flag, or details of Augustus Martin's other print solutions, please contact Dave Davies on 020 7537 4200.
