The special collector pieces were kindly donated by Shane Claffey who is a close friend to the Irwin family who founded Jack & Jill from their experience which evolved from the home respite care for their son Jack that has now been offered to over 1700 children and their families all over Ireland since 1997. The jerseys were kindly framed by inmates in Wheatfield Prison.
There will be a reserve of €100 on each Jersey and bidding will be in increments of €16 which is the equivalent of 1 home nursing hour.
All proceeds are going to The Jack and Jill Foundation. Jack & Jill have supported 441 families in Dublin since 1997.
