Armadillo charity helped in the Great Britain Rugby League All Stars Tournament
John from Armadillo Self Storage in Hull recently attended in a rugby league tournament, which was held in memory of Tim Sage, popular Rugby League player for Hull KR, and amateur teams Beverley and Eureka.
Tim tragically died from cancer just before Christmas, leaving a wife who had just had her 12 week scan for her baby, now their beautiful daughter Hannah. The event aimed to raise money for the “Saggy” trust, and Armadillo’s own charity, Life for a Kid.
The tournament was held at Hull Rugby Union Club, and four teams participated, which involved all of Tim’s previous clubs and the Great Britain All-Stars, including Great Britain international players such as Paul Newlove, Andy Gregory, Gary Divorty and Anthony Sullivan.
The turnout for the tournament exceeded everyone’s expectations, with at least 1,500 people attending and queues for entry still forming two hours after the tournament had commenced.
With the Armadillo logo emblazoned on their now infamous shirts, the international players were more than happy to pose for photos with John and listen to the reasons why they had this unique addition to their kits.
In all, the tournament was an incredible success, however it is too early to tell the exact amount that was raised for the charities. The day was a fantastic way of seeing Armadillo’s charity work in action, and it is safe to say that the publicity raised for Life for a Kid, has been invaluable.
Armadillio are proud to support Life for a Kid, all from a chance meeting with founder Dean Hoggard, who was enquiring about the cost of storage space. To find out more about ‘Life for a Kid’ please visit their website at www.lifeforakid.com.
