We have been lucky enough to frame for some great causes and for some top sportspeople over the years. Here’s a bit more about those exciting framing projects.
We love having the opportunity to frame for professionals who are at the top of their sport. Being based in Bournemouth, we’ve framed for international footballers Harry Wilson and Arnaut Danjuma, as well as legends of the club like Alan Connell. Players from Southampton (Josh Sims) and Brighton (Ben White and Steven Alzate) have also come to us with their framing requests, as well as a host of others across a range of clubs in the Football League. It’s not just English sides though as Moses Makasi at Brage in Sweden and Belgian side Royale Union Saint-Gilloise have also been given us their shirts for framing.
As you’ve seen on our site, its not just football shirts that we specialize in. World Snooker Champion Judd Trump asked us to frame a cue for him as well as Wales’ Kane Charig who won a Commonwealth Silver medal in Wrestling in 2018. This was a particularly enjoyable framing project as we were tasked with framing the wrestling singlet and medal.
The FA’s Lionhearts
In the summer of 2020, with many brilliant individuals across the UK giving their time and effort to raise money and help those affected by COVID, the FA unveiled their Lionhearts campaign to pay homage to the heroes that have emerged during the pandemic.
The FA are selecting a squad of 23 #Lionhearts; people who inspire and encourage and it has been our great privilege and honour to be a small part of this, as we are pleased to announced that we were selected as the framing partner for the FA for each and every shirt gifted to the Lionhearts.Each Lionheart is to be featured on the FA and England Football Team social media feeds and will be gifted a framed England football shirt with their unique Lionheart squad number.
We have written a blog post about the Lionhearts journey and who we have framed, and you can check out more on the Lionhearts campaign and a story about each of theese brilliant individuals on the FA’s website.
At The Shirt Framing Service we try to give back to local charities as much as we can and support a number of worthwhile causes. We have run a number of framing auctions to raise money for local charities such as The Dorset Children’s Foundation and work closely with Friends Fighting Cancer to provide framed memorabilia to help raise money for families affected by cancer around Portsmouth and Southampton.
Shirts are sourced from various places, sometimes they are donations from individuals, some we have the opportunity to buy and donate, others come direct from the club themselves. In all cases we frame them and donate 100% of the proceeds to the relevant charity.
