Salford Red Devils have unveiled a t-shirt which will aim to raise money for the Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust.
Made in partnership with the Salford Red Devils Foundation, 100% of funds raised from the ‘Tee for Hope’ will go to the Trust, who are currently helping hospitals and NHS workers throughout Greater Manchester battle through the increased pressure of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The T-shirt design was inspired by 13-year-old fan Erin Ellaby, who won the Salford Red Devils Foundation ‘design a shirt’ competition.
She said: “Me and my family are big Salford fans and we have several family connections to Salford Royal. I thought the NHS’ work should be recognised by the public.
“I chose the rainbow colours because almost globally, it’s been used as a sign of happiness and hope.”
Salford Red Devils Foundation director Neil Blackburn added: “Salford Red Devils Foundation and our partners are working really hard in these trying times to make sure we continue to make a difference in our local community.
“After the success of our design an NHS shirt competition, we thought this was the best way to show our appreciation for all the key workers in the health service, especially those at Salford Royal.”
The T-shirts can be purchased from just £8.95 at: teeforhope.co.uk.
