Wigan Warriors' Jackson Hastings donates match-worn shirt to support Mose Masoe Foundation
Wigan Warriors player Jackson Hastings has offered up a match-worn shirt to raise funds in support of a former RL player whose career was ended by a devastating injury.
Mose Masoe a fomer Hull KR player, suffered a career-ending spinal injury in a friendly match in January 2020. He later launched the Mose Masoe Foundation, with the aim to:
- Provide relief of financial hardship amongst current and former rugby players by making grants of money for providing or paying for items, services or facilities.
- Provide relief of mental hardship amongst current and former rugby players.
- Support ex-players who have and/or are suffering from spinal injuries affecting their welfare and quality of life.
- Raise awareness of spinal injuries arising through playing rugby.
And now, Warriors star Hastings has donated a shirt, which he wore during the club's most recent fixture against Masoe's former club Hull KR on June 18, in a bid to boost the fund-raising goals.
On the Raffall page, a statement from the club said: "The whole of the Rugby League community has been touched by the fight shown by Hull KR's Mose Masoe since suffering a serious spinal injury during a game last year, so Wigan Warriors' Jackson Hastings is among those wanting to support Mose, his family and his Foundation through the challenge.
"His Match-Worn shirt from Wigan Warriors v Hull KR (18.06.2021) is now available for raffle to raise money for the Mose Masoe Foundation, 100% of proceeds will go to the charity.
"For just £2 per ticket, your own small individual contributions will collectively go a long way. We hope to raise as much as possible for this fantastic cause and welcome every entry you can give."
