The shirt has been signed by 17 players from the O’s first team
The jersey was due to be worn in the League Cup tie against Tottenham Hotspur in September, but the game was called off after several Orient players tested positive for Covid-19.
Bill Plant Driving Schools, which was due to be the O’s sleeve sponsor for the game, has donated the shirt to Haven House Children’s Hospice, which is based in Woodford Green.
Chris Bishop, from Bill Plant Driving School, said: “It was an honour for Bill Plant Driving School to feature on this iconic community-focused Leyton Orient kit and sadly for everyone involved the game didn’t go ahead.
“In passing the shirt to Haven House to auction, we trust this unique shirt will be an item for someone to treasure dearly and raise money for the fantastic team at Haven House.”
The shirt features the signatures of 17 Orient players, and anyone who wants to make a bid for the shirt can do so on eBay’s website.
Lindy Hunt, Head of Community Engagement at Haven House, said: “We cannot thank the team at Bill Plant Driving School enough for this gesture to donate the match shirt from the Leyton Orient and Tottenham Hotspur game. We hope this special shirt goes to a great home and the hospice will thoroughly appreciate the funds received.”
The auction is live until 8pm on Monday, 14 December.
