SPF back RL Benevolent Fund’s support for Mose Masoe with £10,000 donation

The Rugby League Benevolent Fund has received a magnificent £10,000 donation from the Steve Prescott Foundation to help the charity provide care and rehabilitation for Hull Kingston Rovers player Mose Masoe.

Mose is currently being treated in Pinderfields Hospital, Wakefield, after suffering a serious spinal injury in a pre-season game against Wakefield Trinity on January 12.

RL Benevolent Fund General Manager Steve Ball said: “This is yet another magnificent gesture from an organisation that truly understands the values of the Rugby League family.

“Since its inception, the Steve Prescott Foundation has been a major supporter of the RL Benevolent Fund and this donation will help us to provide Mose and his family with the support and care they need at this critical time.”

The £10,000 donation is in addition to a cheque for £40,000 presented to the RL Benevolent Fund at the RFL President’s Ball, which was held on the eve of the match in which Mose was injured.

Steve Prescott Foundation Chairman Mike Denning said: “The injury to Mose could happen to anyone who takes to the rugby pitch. Mose is a well loved Rugby League player and has been a fans’ favourite at every club he has played for.

“The SPF continues to support the RL Benevolent Fund in its purpose to provide relief for players who suffer serious injury, resulting in life-changing circumstances whilst playing the greatest game. We are sure the amazing people who support and raise funds for the SPF would want us to give extra support Mose and his family during this testing time.”

The Steve Prescott Foundation will make collections for Mose at the GPW Recruitment St Helens 10k Run and encourage the 2,000 runners to ‘Bring a £1 for Mose.’ The SPF has also been given permission by Super League champions St Helens to stage a bucket collection at the match against Hull KR on March 26.

The Steve Prescott Foundation has donated over £621,000 to the RL Benevolent Fund to date and is committed to continuing that support in 2020 through major fundraising events, including a cycle ride from the Eiffel Tower to Blackpool Tower; the Yorkshire Three Peaks; and Machu Picchu Rainbow Mountains Trek in October.

A Justgiving page set up to help Mose and his family has already raised over £40,000.
