A life-long, dedicated Saints fan has donated her season ticket plus over £400 to the Saints Community Development Foundation [SCDF] in honour of her late husband who passed away in June.
Chris Littler, who lost her husband Barry in June of this year, contacted the Saints to reveal she had donated her 2020 Membership back to the Club in return for her husband’s name being displayed in the player’s tunnel at the Totally Wicked Stadium for the next five years – as part of the membership benefits for donating members.
But that wasn’t all….Chris, whose daughter Suzanne is chaplain of our Saints Ladies team, then revealed she had £425 she simply wanted to hand over to SCDF in order for our charitable arm to continue the fantastic work throughout the St Helens community and beyond.
The Club had arranged for Chris and close family to meet at the ground near her husband’s turnstile entrance prior to Barry’s funeral on 9th July and Chris showed her thanks with such a kind donation.
Steve Leonard, Director of Saints Community Development Foundation said: “We can’t thank Chris enough for her kind donation. These are troubling times for everyone at present, so for her to be so thoughtful is heart-warming. Her season ticket donation will not only help the Club financially, but the kind cheque she has given to the Foundation really will go a long way to ensuring we continue to help those in our local community during this difficult time. We can’t thank her enough.”
