Fit to CareWarrington Wolves players launched a piece of kit with a difference today- all in aid of St RoccoÆs Hospice. The St RoccoÆs Hospice Fit to Care wristbands - printed in the primrose and blue colours of Warrington Wolves - is the latest fundraising initiative to come from the Warrington Hospice. St RoccoÆs Hospice is Warrington Wolves chosen charity for 2005, and the club has given fantastic support to the Hospice since the launch of their partnership at the first home game in February. Joint partnership fundraising events include the childrenÆs training day æRun with the WolvesÆ, a 2006 calendar (out later this year) and the wristbands. The Fit to Care wristbands have proved to be so successful that they have nearly sold out in the first week!Martin Gleeson commented, "These bands are a fantastic idea they are very fashionable and at the same time getting the point across about the work that St RoccoÆs Hospice does in the Warrington area. I will be showing my support by wearing my band."St RoccoÆs Fit to Care/Wolves wristbands are on sale for just ú1 - and are available at the Wolves Shop, the Hospice in Bewsey and will also be sold at the match against Hull FC on Sunday 24th April in the South Stand.
