A huge thank you to everyone who bid on either one of our charity shirt auctions over the last two weeks.
Collectively, close to £8,000 has been raised by ‘bids’ alone for St Helens Autism Support and Andy Reid’s Warrior Challenge.
And that figure is set to increase when proceeds from the sales of the special Autism shirt, worn at the Magic Weekend, and the red ‘warm-up’ tops for the Warrior Challenge, are announced.
Saints Chief Executive Mike Rush said: “We’re really glad to have such a generous community of people who want to show their support for the charities. That means a lot to the club.
“Autism is a cause close to my heart and we are well on track to match the figure we raised last year.
“I’m also delighted that the Warrior Challenge auction has gone so well. Andy is an inspiration to all.”
The players’ Magic Weekend shirts were all sold in aid of St Helens Autism Support; a charity who offers free support to the families of people on the autistic spectrum.
And the first team’s ‘warm up’ tops worn before their win over Widnes were auctioned for the Warrior Challenge in honour of the memory of six men who lost their lives while serving in Afghanistan.
