Chelsea icon Terry auctions off playing memorabilia for charity

John Terry will auction off memorabilia from his playing days to raise money for the NHS and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The Chelsea legend hopes to raise £250,000 through auctioning off several shirts, boots and other memorabilia from his trophy-laden career via eBay.

"I was sitting there being inspired by what Joe Cole was doing," he told Sky Sports. "I wanted to make a real difference. I've been an ambassador for Make-A-Wish for 15 odd years now and it's close to my heart.

"I want to raise as much money as I possibly can for the NHS and Make-A-Wish. The response has been incredible, and in less than four days we've raised £190.000. The response of the nation has been incredible and I'm really proud of that."
