The London Northern Ireland Supporters’ Club are our Fans of the Month for December.
To date, sales of the Green and White Army exiles’ Michael O’Neill Lego figures - ‘Wee MON’ – have raised over £5,000 for charities across Northern Ireland. That means they are half way to reaching their goal of £10,000.
⚽️ All profits from the 'Wee MON' sold by the @LondonNISC will go towards 20 different charities across Northern Ireland 👏🏻 #GAWA— Northern Ireland (@NorthernIreland) December 13, 2018

The mini Michael has the backing of the man himself who admitted that he and his family found it ‘very amusing’, adding: “It’s great to think that something small has the potential to help raise such a large amount for local charities.”
“It was originally intended only for our members, but the sizable minimum order quantity from the supplier meant we ended up with a few spares.
“As the club has already covered the costs of making the Wee MONs, we thought why not donate all proceeds from the spares to charity.”
With 20 nominated charities across NI, Neal said the club members wanted to help smaller organisations where the funds will ‘make a genuine difference to local communities’.
The London NISC is now working together with The Amalgamation of NI Supporters Clubs to help promote the Wee MONs. Each one is available for a minimum donation of £5, plus postage.
