A framed Real Madrid shirt signed by Cristiano Ronaldo is to be auctioned off to raise cash for Barnsley Hospital.

Businessman Derek Carpenter donated the shirt as a fundraiser for Barnsley Hospital Charity’s Tiny Hearts Appeal, which aims to raise £1 million to support the relocation and development of a new neonatal unit.

The charity is auctioning the item through Ebay.

Derek, who donated the shirt, said: “A colleague won it at a business event. One of his children had received neonatal care at an anxious time in his family’s life and I introduced him to the Tiny Hearts Appeal.

“He agreed it was a worthy cause and agreed to release the shirt for auction.”
