St Helens have will spread awareness for Autism in 2019 after revealing a limited edition Magic Weekend kit.
The shirt continues the to beat the drum for both Autism awareness as a whole, and helping local people with Autism, through the St Helens Autism Support (SAS) charity. Saints have already proudly donated over £30,000 to the charity from club initiatives since the first Magic shirt in 2016.
With Saints being the only Super League club based in Merseyside, we want to present the club’s iconic brand to the City of Liverpool whilst still retaining the support for the club’s local Charity.
As part of Saints’ commitment, the club will again donate 10% of the net retail profit from each shirt to raise vital funds for the local group.
St Helens Autism Support Charity chairman, Tommy Jackson said: “The SAS Charity is delighted that Saints have continued their incredible support and chosen us to feature in this year’s Magic Shirt design.
The work by Saints in recent years to support the Charity has had a huge impact locally, not least in raising awareness of Autism and its challenges.
We will be looking to further our work alongside the Saints Community Development Foundation and other partners with the hope of creating ‘Hubs’ for local people with Autism to utilise after they complete their education.”
We are delighted to unveil our brand-new 2019 Magic shirt! ?⚪️?⚪️?
It continues the Club's focus around the St Helens Austim Support Charity and will be proudly worn at the 2019 @daciauk Magic Weekend at Anfield Stadium
