Last year Vinnies saw the launch of a multi-platform award-winning campaign called Vinnies Signed Finds. Music fans were given the chance to get their hands on an amazing piece of memorabilia signed by their favourite musicians and simultaneously support a great cause, in turn driving new customers to Vinnies Retail Centres across Australia. This year, Vinnies Signed Finds returned and we received 105 signed items from renowned sports who got involved to support Vinnies Retail Centres whilst making fans’ dreams come true. Over 50% of our funding comes from Vinnies Retail Centres, hence it is of vital importantance to the Society to attract customers, both new and existing to shop at Vinnies on a regular basis. Signed items donated to Vinnies Signed Finds Sports attracted the likes of legendary cricketer’s Shane Warne, Brett Lee and Mike Hussey, Australian tennis champions Pat Cash, Pat Rafter and Lleyton Hewitt, International Golfing sensation Tommy ‘Two Gloves’ Gainey, Socceroo Tim Cahill, AFL teams; Sydney Swans, Geelong Cats and Western Bulldogs as well as the Newcastle Knights, Cronulla Sharks and Canterbury Bulldogs from the NRL. The hunt began April 24th and few items are left hidden in stores. All items and Signed Finders can be found on Facebook pages By following our Signed Finds social media pages, fans received clues as to where the items were hidden as well as having the ability to track the campaign’s progress. Vinnies Signed Finds Sports has now attracted over 41,000 Facebook fans and 50 000 posts in less than two months. Signed Finds Sports has been a huge success and we’re looking forward to its positive impact on the Society.
