Rugby league clubs have been asked to support this month?s joint fundraising dinner & auction for seriously injured players Matt King and Danny Scott by donating their replica shirts for sale or auction at the event, which takes place at Huddersfield?s George Hotel on Sunday 27 June.
International rugby league development organisation 1895 International has teamed up with London Broncos and Huddersfield Giants to promote the event at the historic venue prior to that evening?s Super League clash between the two clubs (kick off 1730hrs).
In order to help generate funds to support the two youngsters, who have both suffered serious spinal injuries whilst playing rugby league this year, organisers have asked clubs from both the amateur and professional game to donate shirts for either sale or auction.
1895 International chairman Lionel Hurst explained: ?This is an opportunity for everybody within our great game to show their support for two fantastic lads and ? quite literally ? nail their club colours to the mast.
?We are appealing for clubs of all sizes to assist us and show their support for what is a most worthy cause and an issue that affects everybody in the game.?
Tickets for the event, which will commence at 2pm, are available from either Phil Jones (London Broncos RLFC: 0208 2321564, 0781 3360796 or email [email protected]) or Jill Sykes (Huddersfield: 01484 548865 email [email protected]) at a cost of ?15, which includes a three-course meal + coffee.
Any clubs wishing to donate shirts for either sale or auction should send them to:
