KEIGHLEY Cougars have presented the monies raised from their special NHS shirt sales to the club's charitable causes.

As a thank you for all the hard work put in by key workers during the COVID-19 epidemic, the club launched special edition NHS shirts to thank those on the frontline, and also raise much needed funds for those worthy causes.

Following the sales of the shirts, which proved massively popular with fans of all clubs across the world, Cougars raised an incredible final total of £6,892.

And on Thursday, Cougars chairman Mick O’Neill presented Jodie Hearnshaw, the fundraising manager at Airedale Hospital, with a cheque for £3,446.

O'Neill, along with head of media and administration Joshua Chapman, then posed with a further cheque for £3,446, which will be donated to the Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice within the town.

Cougars said they would like to thank all those who bought shirts for making these donations possible and hope the money raised will go on to support both Airedale Hospital and Manorlands throughout the remainder of the pandemic and beyond.
