PICTURED is Saints Chairman Eamonn McManus handing over a cheque for £10,000 to St Helens Autism Support.
The donation was reached through the sales of the Autism Awareness shirt that Saints wore at the Magic Weekend, the auction of the players’ shirts, a golf day and other donations.
Tom Jackson from St Helens Autism Support said: “Our charity was created with the twin aims of raising awareness of autism and providing funds for projects within the Borough to support local, impacted people.
“Thanks to the supporters, players and staff of St. Helens Rugby League Club, we have progressed on both of these aims.
“There is nothing not to like about this ground-breaking initiative and everyone involved, especially the rugby league public, should feel justly proud of their involvement.
“The project has been far reaching; schoolchildren to parliamentarians have all played a part.
“On behalf of St. Helens Autism Support, the Trustees would like to wholeheartedly thank all of those who have put their hands up to support autism awareness through this campaign.”
