Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Here’s a chance to rub shoul­ders with some rugby league per­son­al­i­ties and raise money for a great cause.

The Mad Butcher and Subur­ban News­pa­pers Com­mu­nity Trust is host­ing a fundrais­ing lun­cheon for the League 4 Life pro­gramme at the Eller­slie Events Cen­tre on May 9. A char­ity auc­tion will take place and items go­ing un­der the ham­mer in­clude the boots worn by Benji Mar­shall in his last ever game for the Ki­wis.

Who­ever suc­cess­fully bids for a signed Voda­fone War­riors jer­sey will also get the chance to meet his or her favourite player.

League 4 Life is a sup­port net­work for league play­ers, af­fil­i­ates and their fam­i­lies fac­ing fi­nan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties and hard­ship.

Among those it aims to help are for­mer play­ers in need of re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion or spe­cial as­sis­tance be­cause of in­juries dur­ing their play­ing days.

The MC is trustee and League 4 Life am­bas­sador Sir Peter Leitch.

All at­ten­dees will re­ceive Voda­fone War­riors sup­porter mem­ber­ship.

Any­one who pur­chases a ta­ble will also re­ceive two free tick­ets to the War­riors match be­ing played against the Raiders the next day at Eden Park.
