Warrington release Australian training shirt in aid of bushfire victims

Warrington have unveiled a limited edition training tee in support of the Red Cross who have been helping deal with the Australian bushfires.

The Australian Red Cross have been able to deploy 1,285 trained staff and volunteers to disaster-affected communities thanks to their Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.

Former Warrington back-rower turned Australian firefighter, Trent Waterhouse, said: “These bushfires have been devastating Australia this summer with people losing their lives and their homes.

“To have my old club Warrington pledge their support to help the victims of these fires is very touching and on behalf of Australia we thank you very much Warrington Wolves this is greatly appreciated.”

Wolves chief executive, Karl Fitzpatrick, commented: “We have been disturbed by the images of the devastation the fires have caused.

“We have many friends in Australia, it’s a country we have such a close affinity with. We wanted to pledge our support and show that all at Warrington Wolves and all our supporters are thinking of them. I’d like to thank O’Neills who are also making a donation for every t-shirt sold.”
