Signed pics framed all proceeds to charity.


Recommended Posts


I previously posted this in the eBay section. Though I thought it may not have had many views in there so I'm being cheeky and putting a thread here. Also as if it sells soon the buyer will have for Christmas. Apologies and if necessary I can understand if thread is deleted/moved. All proceeds for a very good cause as explained below.



I currently have an Ebay listing as detailed (all signatures obtained at the players entrance prior to the Wednesday game 18/11 17 :- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bristol-City-signed-framed-photos/132406908496?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140725133651%26meid%3D81b58f8bc9754c32babac1b5dfbf9479%26pid%3D100276%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D302535754757&_trksid=p2060778.c100276.m3476

All funds are to go to my Just Giving account:- https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/a-drummond    

Even if you don't want to bid on ebay/donate please take a minute to read a little of my story to raise awareness of type 1 diabetes. Many Thanks, Andrew

About type 1 diabetes

Type 1 diabetes isn’t caused by poor diet or an unhealthy lifestyle. In fact, it isn’t caused by anything that you did or didn’t do, and there was nothing you could have done to prevent it.

What is type 1 diabetes?

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition. For reasons we don’t yet fully understand, your immune system – which is meant to protect you from viruses and bacteria – attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in your pancreas, called beta cells.

Insulin is crucial to life. When you eat, insulin moves the energy from your food, called glucose, from your blood into the cells of your body. When the beta cells in your pancreas fail to produce insulin, glucose levels in your blood start to rise and your body can’t function properly. Over time this high level of glucose in the blood may damage nerves and blood vessels and the organs they supply.

This condition affects 400,000 people in the UK, with over 29,000 of them children. Incidence is increasing by about four per cent each year and particularly in children under five, with a five per cent increase each year in this age group over the last 20 years.

What causes type 1 diabetes?

More than 50 genes have been identified that can increase a person’s risk of developing type 1 diabetes, but genes are only part of the cause. Scientists are also currently investigating what environmental factors play a role.

What is known is that:

  • Destruction of insulin-producing beta cells is due to damage inflicted by your immune system
  • Something triggered your immune system to attack your beta cells
  • Certain genes put people at a greater risk of developing type 1 diabetes, but are not the only factors involved
  • While there are no proven environmental triggers, researchers are looking for possible culprits, such as viral infections and particular molecules within our environment and foods.

Is type 1 diabetes hereditary?

Around 90 per cent of people with type 1 diabetes have no family history of the condition.

Although other family members may carry the same ‘at risk’ genes, the overall risk of type 1 diabetes for multiple family members is generally low.

Hi all,

Thanks very much,  I should've probably posted in the main thread earlier.

Though very grateful for your comments and the bids.

The pics captured on eBay I really don't think do the pics/signatures justice and I'm sure the winning will be very pleased with it when it's received. I'd attach some better pics but I think I don't have the ability to post pics on (guessing I need to make more posts for higher trust and post pics).

@TETBURY MASSIVE  I assume it was yourself whom I was speaking to at the players entrance. If so thanks again for your help on the day shouting the lads over. The game itself was very much as we predicted and I remember you called it as a draw.

All the best to yourselves for the rest of the season.
