Keighley Cougars launch NHS charity jersey to show support for key frontline workers

Keighley Cougars have launched a new charity jersey in support of NHS and key frontline workers battling Covid-19 on the frontline.

The £35 jersey went on sale this morning and all profits raised from the shirt sales will to be donated to the local NHS trust and other frontline worker groups, the club said.

Last week, Cougars said they would donate 5,000 CE certified facemasks, with more in production, to Airedale Hospital, the Sue Ryders Manorlands hospice and other key frontline providers to aid with the shortage of vital PPE equipment.

The players will wear the new kit for their first home fixture back at Cougar Park, once action resumes. It will be part of a special ‘Thank You Day’ for NHS staff and other frontline workers.
