Peterborough United  announced that the fixture with Cardiff City on Monday 28th December (3pm) has been designated as a day to raise awareness of three charities for the 2009-2010 campaign, the Free Kicks Foundation, Sue Ryder Care and ASBAH.

Chairman Darragh MacAnthony has recognised the superb work that the charities undertake throughout the year and as such has kindly allowed for the sponsorship of the kit to be replaced for one game only by their three nominated charities.

Peterborough have worked closely with kit manufacturer adidas who have kindly donated a full kit, with help from Chroma Sports, for the fixture with Cardiff City. Chairman Darragh MacAnthony said:

'I believe this is the first time in our history that we have used a one-off kit for a league fixture and I was delighted to allow our three charities to have their logo's on the strip.

'We are delighted to be working so closely with Sue Ryder Care, it is a charity that is close to my heart and they are an organisation that do so much for people both in the city and across the country.

'The Free Kicks Foundation are a charity that help disadvantaged children across the city. Steve Thorpe and his team work exceptionally hard and have a close link with the football club. ASBAH are the leading UK registered charity providing information and advice about spina bifida and hydrocephalus and have been involved with the football club for a number of years. I would like to take this opportunity to thank adidas and Chroma Sports for all their continued support and assistance. '

Peterborough United are auctioning off the kits to raise money for Sue Ryder Care, The Free Kicks Foundation and ASBAH and they are hoping that your bids will raise a superb amount for the charities. The top 11 bids will be invited to the Peterborough United v Derby County fixture on Saturday 16th January where a draw will take place for the 11 kits that were worn for the game against Cardiff.

the design doesen't's a charity kit...

To be honest, it's a nice design. <br />To be more honest, it's a very common template from adidas. They should use something new.<br /><br />Anyway, I agree with marino. It doesn't matter. If they mean something good, their heart will look good no matter what you wear.

there really milking this template

The design of the kit isn't really relevant, even though I do think it looks smart regardless of the template.<br /><br />The purpose of the strip is to raise awareness and funds for 3 fantastic local charities and I'm sure it will do so. Just being on the football shirt websites such as this one has raised the profile of the charities involved.

To be honest this should have been their away kit for this season, not the well out-of-date 3 year old Adidas design Argentina rip-off that they currently have.<br /><br />Still its a good thing to have a charity kit with the shirts being auctioned off with the proceeds going to charity.
