SAINTS have donated a signed ball and several shirts to the British Red Cross Typhoon Haiyan Appeal
Carmel Parr of the charity received the items from Merchandising Manager Steve Law recently.
Senior Community Fundraiser Alexis Fairclough from Merseyside said: “The British Red Cross would like to thank all the players, staff and directors of St.Helens R.F.C. for the very generous donation of a signed Saints Rugby Ball and for the donation of St.Helens R.F.C rugby shirts to help raise money for the Typhoon Haiyan Appeal.
The donated rugby shirts will be sold at British Red Cross shops across the UK and the money raised from the sale of the shirts will go directly to help the people affected by the disaster in the Philippines.”
Steve Law added: “Following the terrible images we have seen of the devastation from the Philippines, Saints were delighted to be able to step in and help the charity with the initial request for a signed Saints ball.
“We then approached the charity to offer a significant quantity of the residual shirt stock from last season.
“The British Red Cross were happy to accept the offer of the shirts and assure us they would be most welcome and put to good use when they arrive.”
