The Mayor of Wolverhampton, Councillor Phil Page, is auctioning off banners and signage which were used at the Wolves Promotion Parade earlier this year.

80,000 people lined the streets of the city centre in glorious sunshine on 7 May as Wolves celebrated the club's return to the Premier League.

The event was dubbed as the biggest party Wolverhampton has ever seen.

Now, Councillor Page, hopes that Wolves fans eager to own a piece of history will snap up the items in a charity online auction.

The lots include giant banners, some of which have been signed by the Wolves squad, which lined the parade route and adorned the front of the city's art gallery on the day of the promotion party.

The gallery was the venue for a Civic Reception held in the club's honour.

Also on offer at the auction the use of an executive box at Molineux for up to eight people when Wolves take on Liverpool on Friday 21 December.

Councillor Page is raising money for his mayoral charities which are Inspire You, Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre, Kingswood Trust and Good Shepherd Relief in Need.

Councillor Page said: "The Wolves promotion parade was an absolutely amazing day which anyone lucky enough to witness will never forget.

"We have some of the banners and signs which were used on the day to line the parade route and around West Park and I thought that people might want to own a piece of history and bid for them to raise money for charity.

"I am also offering the use of an executive box at Molineux for up to 8 people when Wolves take on title contenders Liverpool in what will be a sell out fixture next on 21 December.

"Wolves have some of the most loyal and diehard fans in the world and I feel sure they will jump at the chance to own these collector's items and help me raise funds for these really worthwhile charities."

The auction is open until 12pm on Tuesday 18 December. To make a bid people must visit Type=links;Linkid=11343;Title=Mayor's charity auction 2018;Target=_blank;.
