The Canberra Raiders and Major sponsor Huawei are giving fans the opportunity to bid on the match-worn jerseys from Saturday’s match against the Brisbane Broncos, to help raise money for the Black Dog Institute.
Thanks to www.allbids.com.au the jerseys will be made available for auction once the team has been named for the weekend’s match, with 18 individual jerseys signed by the player named in that jersey, a jersey signed by coach Ricky Stuart and a full signed jersey all available.
The auction will run through until Sunday August 30.
Founded in 2002 the Black Dog Institute is internationally recognised as a pioneer in the identification, prevention and treatment of mental illness, and the promotion of wellbeing.
The institute takes its name from the term coined by former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Sir Winston Churchill to describe his own depression with his renowned ‘V for Victory’ symbol and the dog’s shadow paying respect to the fact that although mental illness can be ever-present, however does not define the individual.
Both Huawei Australia and the Canberra Raiders are extremely proud to be helping an organization such as the Black Dog Institute at a time when the economic and social impacts of COVID-19 are impacting on the mental health of many people in Australia.
Although ongoing COVID-19 restrictions will prevent Huawei Australia, the Canberra Raiders and the Black Dog Institute from delivering our originally scheduled program of activities for Charity Round we still encourage fans to watch out on social media for ways in which they can get involved with and support NRL Charity Round.
The round has enabled Huawei Australia to work with the Canberra Raiders to raise well in excess of $100,000 for a range of charities including Tour de Cure, Bowel Cancer Australia, Ricky Stuart Foundation and Deaf Australia.
