Raiders Proud to Support Commando Welfare Trust

The Raiders are proud to present the Commando Welfare Trust with the proceeds from the ANZAC Jersey auction, with funds raised going towards supporting the men, women and families of the Special Operations Command. 

The player worn ANZAC jerseys worn in round seven against Penrith were auctioned off through, with the money raised going to the Commando Welfare Trust.

The Trust has been running for ten years and helps support those who may be struggling once they've left the armed forces and the families of those killed on operations.

The organisation can help with things like putting kids through school, helping find work for those struggling, helping out at their houses and helping those who've left the armed forces find their feet again.

Commando Welfare Trust Chairman Mark Smethurst says that having the support of the Raiders is really special.

"The ANZAC game is huge and the fact that the Raiders have donated their jerseys and have run an auction to support the Trust is a big thing," Smethurst said.

"We've got a big function coming up on Thursday night and I'll be highlighting to all those attending that the Raiders have thrown their support behind the organisation."
