Leeds Rhinos stars to take part in big event for charity

Leeds Rhinos’ Twitter page may be down but the club is still active and doing it’s part for the community.

The Rhinos are one of the best clubs in Super League when it comes to getting involved in the community perhaps because that was one of the goals Gary Hetherington pinpointed when he took over the club in 1996.

Leeds have prospering women’s, wheelchair and PDRL sides and the foundation are constantly in and amongst the community especially in schools across the city.

Meanwhile, the Rhinos have spear headed plenty of charity initiatives as a club.

In 2010 they released a special pink shirt to raise money for cancer research after the death of club legend John Holmes.

Meanwhile, they have done similar things in 2012 and 2019 and of course in 2022 in the fight against motor neurone disease after legend Rob Burrow was diagnosed with the awful disease going into 2020.

The club also routinely strives to help battle homelessness in Leeds with their annual big sleep out and that will again be happening in 2022.

As per usual, the Rhinos have a star player involved in the shape of prop Tom Holroyd who is ready to burst back on the scene in 2023 after two injury hit seasons.

He’ll be joined by academy and reserve star Joe Gibbons who is son of former player David Gibbons and nephew to his twin brother Anthony.

They are looking to raise money for St George’s Crypt.
