Community rugby clubs are being encouraged to apply for funding to buy life-saving equipment as part of a campaign launched by the widow of Keighley Cougars player Danny Jones.
Lizzie Jones is hoping grants to buy defibrillators will help junior teams put safety mechanisms in place. Her husband Danny died after suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch last May.
The Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund aims to raise money that will help hundreds of community clubs and junior teams across the country to purchase a defibrillator, while helping raise awareness of the value of defibrillators as life saving devices to community clubs
Defibrillators cost around £1,000 each and provide potentially life-saving treatment to anyone suffering a cardiac arrest.
Clubs can purchase a defibrillator from RFL-recommended WelMedical by clicking here. Clubs are encouraged to purchase the defibrillators and then submit an application to the Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund to help with the costs.
The purpose of Danny Jones Fund is to encourage as many community Rugby League clubs as possible to purchase a defibrillator via a grants programme administered by Rugby League Cares.
The Danny Jones Defib Fund Grant committee will achieve this through the provision of a small grant to enable and assist clubs with the purchase.
The Danny Jones Fund is now welcoming applications from the community game. An application guide and form can be found by clicking here.
Applications for this round of grants need to be submitted by Thursday 28 April 2016.

Wakefield centre or second rower Jason Walton will miss his side's trip to Hull on Friday after being handed a one-match ban.
Walton was charged by the Rugby Football League's match-review panel with a dangerous throw on St Helens captain Jon Wilkin during the Wildcats' 44-4 Super League defeat at Langtree Park on Friday.
He was eligible to submit an early-guilty plea to the grade B offence and, after admitting his guilt, was given the minimum suspension.
New Hull KR interim Head Coach James Webster is looking for an immediate improvement when the Robins travel to Huddersfield on Sunday for his first game in charge.
Webster - whose previous coaching experience included 11 months as Head Coach of the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats - was appointed at the weekend, following the departure of Chris Chester. Rovers are currently second from bottom in the Super League table, with just one point from five matches.
Webster, who spent three years as a player at Craven Park, has only been given the job until the end of the current season. There's been no announcement yet about who might be taking over then, though chairman Neil Hudgell has intimated he could still have a place on the coaching staff next year.
The 36 year old Australian, who's latterly been in charge of the new City of Hull Rugby League Academy, admits that his experiences as a Rovers player influenced his decision to take the job.
