A POMPEY legend has used eBay’s new drop-off service in Argos to deliver a signed Pompey football auctioned for charity.

Alan Knight MBE dropped into the Commercial Road store – one of just four towns selected to partake in the trial run – to drop off the football.

Pompey fans had been bidding on the specially- donated signed item from July 2 and raised £98 for Rowans Hospice.

Anne Yendell, from The Rowans Hospice, said: ‘Every year we need 
£5 million to fund our services and we thank football fans out there for supporting the charity and bidding on what are really unique items and in doing so contributing to our work.’

The charity auction has seen specially donated items being delivered through the local Argos drop-off point.

Argos is hoping to 
attract more eBay sellers to use the service, which will ship goods direct to their buyer.

The eBay drop-off service is available now at the Argos store at 207-211 Commercial Road in Portsmouth (PO1 4BJ).
