Grant Millington’s superb act of charity for Castleford community

Grant Millington will be giving back to the community of Castleford one last time before he returns home.

He retired at the end of the season just gone, but the fans’ favourite will once more enamour himself to the Tigers faithful, raising money for a sick child.

Millington’s Just Giving page states: “I’ve been wanting to give back to the Castleford community before I move home to Australia – I’ve been wondering how I might do this and finally decided I would shave my beard, which I’ve been growing for 12 months, at my All Stars game on Wednesday 20th October – my wife and I have been made aware of a local boy Rowan who was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus.

“After 217 days Rowan is finally home but requires a special cot that can contain all his medical equipment and is adjustable to help control the fluid on his brain to aid his shunt.

“Rowan has a cot on loan only until December 2021, after this time it is up to his family to purchase one, which is nearly £5,000 (they are about £1,100 from their goal). Together with Life for a Kid charity, let’s rally around this family and support them in any way we can!”

Millington has been at the Jungle for over a decade, joining the club way back in 2012 and registering almost 250 appearances in Castleford colours.
