A total of $12,432 was raised for the League 4 Life Foundation from an online auction of jerseys worn by the players in veteran Vodafone Warrior Simon Mannering's 250th NRL appearance in July.
This week Mannering presented League 4 Life trustee Graeme Coutts with a cheque from the club for the foundation which is the charity of the day for the Vodafone Warriors' final match of the 2016 season against Parramatta at Mount Smart Stadium on Sunday (6.00pm kick-off).
After Mannering's milestone match against Gold Coast on July 2, the playing jerseys were put up for auction on Trade Me.
Each jersey was signed by Mannering as well as the player who wore it while the individual player’s name and Mannering’s name were also screen printed on each jersey along with the number 250 in recognition of the achievement.
The auction was held exclusively to raise funds for League 4 Life which aims to support former players and members of the rugby league community who have fallen on hard times.
The only jerseys not auctioned were the ones worn by Mannering and interchange forward Bunty Afoa, who made his debut as Vodafone Warrior #213 against the Titans.
The Vodafone Warriors are seeking to provide a further funding boost for League 4 Life on Sunday with bucket collections around the ground and a monster raffle in the Corporate Lounge in the East Stand.
The final match of the season is also the club's traditional Old Boys' Day so get along to acknowledge the old boys, support the team and give generously to League 4 Life.
