Thatto Heath Crusaders suffer shocking arson attack

Thatto Heath Crusaders are raising funds after they were hit by an arson attack in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The 4G training barn that was attacked is used by all age groups at the club, as well as other organisations within the St Helens community.

Extensive damage has been suffered to the core of the structure as well as the 4G playing service and the roof.

A club spokesperson said: “Whilst we are insured and are working hard to recover from the situation, there will be lots of other costs that the club will have to bear.

“We now have to find alternative training facilities for all of our own teams and have lost what was a vital stream of income from external groups who paid to rent the barn.

“The support and offers of help we have received so far from the wider community and rugby league family has been overwhelming.”

The amateur club have set up a GoFundMe page to raise money so they can repair the barn. To make a donation, click here.

If anyone has any information to assist the investigation please email the Club on the above address or anonymously to Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111 quoting Job ID 651.
