Hospice receive super donation

Friday, 27 October 2017
Super League sponsor Betfred have donated £1250.00 to The Prince of Wales Hospice, the cheque was personally delivered to the Hospice by Castleford Tigers star, Jake Webster.

Super League sponsors Betfred awarded a man of the match prize for every game televised live on Sky Sports during the 2017 season, with each winner given £250.00 for a charity of their choice.
 
On five occasions Castleford Tigers players, including Jake Webster, chose to donate the prize money to The Prince of Wales Hospice, which is their Charity of the Year partner.
 
Jake visited the Hospice on 25 October to personally deliver the cheque, and visit Tigers super fan, Dave Spencer, who is currently an Incare patient.
 
Talking about the visit, Janet Spencer, Dave’s wife, said;
“Dave has been a Tigers fan all his life; he was so excited when he found out he was going to meet Jake and asked me to bring his Tigers shirt to the Hospice.

"He can’t get to the games anymore, so the visit was amazing and gave Dave a real boost; it’s something we won't forget.”
 
The Hospice supports patients with a life-limiting and their families in the Five Towns community. The Betfred donation will enable the Hospice to provide the care, medicine and disposable equipment needed to run an Incare bedroom for a morning.
 
Speaking on the day, Tigers star Jake Webster said: “The players, coaches and club staff here at the Tigers have all seen the fantastic work that happens at the Hospice, and the amazing difference the Hospice, based in Pontefract, makes to so many people in the local community.

"It’s a great honour for me to have the opportunity to hand over this cheque today, and I’d like to thank Betfred for making it happen.”
