Five brothers have each been given a unique framed football shirt in memory of their youngest brother who passed away earlier this year. 

Bespoke framing specialists Matrix Frames lent a helping hand to Bluebell Wood by agreeing to frame five Sheffield United shirts in honour of Theo Singh-Eyley, and his family, who have been supported by the charity since 2009. 

Theo, a big Sheffield United fan, passed away in June at the age of 11. He was born at 29 weeks and diagnosed very early on with cerebral palsy, epilepsy and feeding problems among other complex medical needs. He was also registered blind. He bravely endured 31 surgical procedures in his short life, and survived viral and bacterial meningitis. 

Sam, one of Theo’s brothers, said: "Theo was an amazing little fighter and no matter how poorly he was, he was always smiling. He had a really cheeky sense of humour and loved Sheffield United. It meant a lot to him that he got to meet two of his heroes, Billy Sharp and Chris Morgan, before he died. The team at Bluebell Wood supported Theo since he was born and they've been beyond amazing throughout that time, especially during our last few weeks with Theo.” 

James Lindley from Matrix Frames said: “A few years ago we decided to focus our efforts on one charity, where we could help to make a difference, and we chose to support Bluebell Wood because of its fantastic work in the local community. We’ve been delighted to help with the framing of shirts and other items for Bluebell Wood over those years. We’re pleased to have helped Bluebell Wood save on the cost of this, so that those funds can be used to directly support families.”

Rachael Dawes, Corporate Fundraising Manager, Bluebell Wood, said: “We’re really grateful to Matrix Frames for their help. Creating special memories for families is at the heart of our work at Bluebell Wood and we hope that these framed shirts will provide another happy memory of Theo for all his brothers.”
