Rocker Robert Plant has paid more than $1,350 to play in a testimonial match for a longrunning player at his beloved British soccer team.
The Led Zeppelin legend attended a fundraising dinner in honor of recently retired Wolves soccer star Jody Craddock earlier this week, and couldn’t help but bid in the event’s auction.
Plant handed over the highest price for the chance to play in Craddock’s testimonial match next May, which will mark the sportsman’s long service to the side, based in Wolverhampton, England.
The $12,000 raised at the auction will go to the Birmingham Children’s Hospital, where Craddock’s son Toby was treated for leukemia.
