G&H Maintenance donates signed Leeds Rhinos match shirt to help charity raise funds

G&H Maintenance is continuing its support of Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice by donating a signed Leeds Rhinos match shirt to help raise vital funds.

Artistically framed and mounted, Sue Ryder is holding a ten day eBay auction of the prized item with proceeds helping the charity provide expert compassion and care.

Bids can be made until 8pm on Friday 8 April: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224911100372?hash=item345dbf09d4:g:I38AAOSwJ6JiQ1is

The shirt was given to G&H Maintenance last month after it sponsored Leeds Rhinos’ home game against the 2021 regular season league winners, Catalan Dragons.

G&H Maintenance Director, David Ridsdale, said: “Raising money for charities is a key part of our CSR programme and we thought it would be a nice gesture to donate the shirt to Sue Ryder who we have helped the past couple of years.

“They are a very worthy recipient given the outstanding work they carry out supporting people through the most difficult times of their lives and this will help raise more money for them.

“The shirt has already generated a lot of interest as it is really impressive visually.

“As very few are issued, it is something of a collector’s item that would look fantastic in the bar of an amateur rugby or sports social club or even in an enthusiast’s home.”

Community Fundraising Manager at Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice, Kirsty Christmas, said: “We’re big Leeds Rhinos fans here at Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice with our Sue Ryder Ambassador, Jamie Peacock, being an ex-player of the club.

“We’re big fans of the team at G&H Maintenance too, who continue to do so much to support our hospice and raise vital funds so our care teams can be there for local families when it matters.

“At Sue Ryder we believe the end of people’s lives should be filled with treasured memories, family and friends and the funds raised from the eBay auction of this prized signed Leeds Rhinos shirt will help our care teams be there for families to help them fill their final days with love.”

For the past two years G&H Maintenance has provided free support at Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice in Headingley and Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope near Keighley.

Maintenance work includes reviews of mechanical and electrical equipment and servicing all boilers, air conditioning systems and water heaters at both hospices.

The funds G&H Maintenance saves the charity through offering this free support is diverted to vital patient care.
