In for a pound…

October 23, 2012

If you could guarantee a Forest goal by spending £1, you’d do it in a flash, wouldn’t you? Unfortunately this isn’t possible, but the next best thing you can do is build up some good karma for the Reds by donating to the ‘Goals for LJS’ charity campaign.

LSJ FoundationSet-up by LTLF forum member Paul Elmore (who also set-up the Just Giving page that raised more than £4,000 for ChildLine in memory of Nigel Doughty earlier this year), Goals for LJS encourages Reds to donate a pound (or more if they wish) for every goal scored by on-loan striker Billy Sharp.

The money goes to the Luey Jacob Sharp Foundation, a foundation set up by Sharp in memory of the young child he lost to the congenital birth defect gastroschisis last year. The organisation aims to raise awareness and provide support to other families affected by the condition.

Billy got off the mark on Saturday and the total raised so far is already at £112, but with his goals not only helping the Reds but also raising money for a great cause, let’s hope he bags a few more against Blackpool tonight.
