Get your Marcus Stewart-inspired t-shirt for MND charity
The Greyhound pub is selling a range of t-shirts for charity, inspired by Ipswich Town legend Marcus Stewart.
Fans are snapping up the cool shirts, with 50% of the proceeds going directly to the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation, which raises money for Motor Neurone Disease research and support for those with the illness.
Marcus, who starred and scored in the Ipswich side that got promoted via the Wembley play-off final in 2000, announced late last year that he had been diagnosed with MND.
With Ipswich on the verge of promotion once more and hundreds of fans expected at the Greyhound before and after today’s match against Exeter City, the £25 shirts are available to buy in the pub garden.
Supporters can also contact the pub to order a shirt for collection, or they can be delivered for an additional £4 postage and packing.
Many have already been sold before the last two home games against Wycombe and Port Vale.
Landlord Dan Lightfoot said: “As we find ourselves on the cusp of promotion again, we wanted to acknowledge the prominent role Marcus played in our promotion to the Premier League in 2000 whilst giving something back to the charity he and his family fundraise for.”
Dan worked with Wendy and Tim Hodgson of Ipswich creative agency WHAT Associates to design three t-shirts, each incorporating Marcus’ shirt number 11.
The shirts are sustainably made from organic cotton and hand-screen printed locally.
Supporters who cannot make it to the Greyhound on Henley Road on Saturday can order one from the pub by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01473 252862. Alternatively, get hold of the pub in its social media accounts.
