Students from St. Helen’s C of E Primary School in Hollins Green were thrilled to be invited as guests of the Warrington Wolves Rugby Club Foundation and to be asked to act as mascots at the Warrington Wolves v Catalan Dragons game at the Magic Weekend held in Newcastle.
The school has been cementing close links with the successful Super League Club for some time now, holding regular rugby training sessions. Teacher Karen Bradbury said:
“Twenty of the pupils took part in the Sky Try touch rugby match that was held during half-time. The Wolves Foundation provided the children with the kit and school also held their own fundraising event to pay for transport to Newcastle. We entered the children into a photograph competition, held by Sky Try on twitter, and won the prize for the best photo representing the schools at the Magic Weekend and won – three rugby balls signed by England RL captain Shaun O’Laughlin. The school will raffle these off to help fundraise for other projects at the school. The children decided that, as a thank you, they would like to donate one of the balls back to the Warrington Wolves Foundation.”
