After winning six Doncaster Rovers football tickets one Worksop man who works in Doncaster but supports Chesterfield FC has decided to auction them off to Help 4 Heroes.

Kev Potter, 58, won the block of six tickets at the James Bond black tie event in the Vulcan Hanger at Robin Hood Airport, where he works as a border force officer.

He said: “I am not an avid football fan but if I had to follow anyone it would be the Spirites in Chesterfield so it seemed a shame to waste the tickets if a true fan wanted them.”

The prize is six tickets in a block group to attend any Doncaster Rovers Football match during the 2015/16 season.

Face value of the tickets would be near £150 and an online auction starts at midnight tonight and will run until Christmas Eve when the highest bidder will win.

“I want to back Help 4 Heroes because it is the charity which is being supported by the airport this year and they do such amazing work.”

Kev, who volunteered to be the border force’s charity champion said: “People for fought for our country shouldn’t be left homeless and needing help we should be honouring them and their service so anything we can do to raise money will be great.”

So far the staff at Robin Hood Airport have raised £500 with cakes sales and collection buckets.
