Rhinos members offer incredible support for those in need
Leeds Rhinos received a heart warming letter recently from two of our members who wanted to support the club and those who are doing it tough at the moment during the coronavirus pandemic.
Michael and Maureen Dalby from Adel, who are lifelong fans and members of the club, sent in a cheque for £120 to buy two five game memberships for a frontline key worker once the lockdown is over and fans are able to return to Emerald Headingley.
The grandparents have enjoyed so many wonderful memories watching the Rhinos down the years that they wanted to show their support for the club and give someone else the opportunity to also enjoy all the action when we are back to normal.
Leeds Rhinos are offering supporters the chance to give their backing to the club during the Super League season suspension with the new ‘This Means More’ membership.
All 2020 members will be automatically included in the 15,000 target and will receive an exclusive ‘This Means More’ pin badge, a real badge of honour, and a £5 Rhinos Retail voucher* as a thank you for their continued support throughout this unprecedented period of uncertainty.
Fans can support the club by becoming a Rhinos 2020 Supporter Member for just £15 or by committing to a 3 or 5 game 2020 Flexi Membership from only £60 for adults (all prices can be found online at tickets.therhinos.co.uk).
All levels of membership include an exclusive ‘This Means More’ pin badge as well as a personalised membership card and a £5 Rhinos Retail voucher*.
On Thursday evening, we will come together as a nation once again to applaud our key workers who are keeping us safe and doing the vital work to maintain the country and our safety.
And we want you to nominate your Leeds Rhinos key worker heroes by emailing us with their name and details about what they are doing so, once we are out of lockdown and able to come together again, we can acknowledge their efforts in our hour of need.
It could be someone putting others before themselves as part of incredible effort by our NHS. Already we have highlighted the pride that Stevie Ward has for sister Rachael, who is newly qualified doctor down in London.
Or perhaps you know a Rhinos fan who is one of the vital care workers helping the most vulnerable members of our society. We highlighted Leeds Rhinos and England star Danielle Anderson and her work in the care sector in Leeds.
Or do you know a Rhinos fanatic who has volunteered their time to go out and support our community during these tough times. The Leeds Rhinos Foundation have done a wonderful job to support our community and we have featured Rhinos player Liam Sutcliffe and the support he is giving them.
Is there a die hard Leeds fan in your family or a friend who is working in our emergency response teams? Rhinos Womens player Abby Eatock, scored a try in last year’s Grand Final win, but is now with the Army offering support to the national effort.
Or perhaps you know someone in your local community who is going the extra mile to help their neighbours and friends. We have heard so many great stories from our player, directors and staff who have volunteered to phone round our supporters to know we are thinking about them and it would be great to hear your stories too.
If you can, please email a photo of the person as well, even better if they have got their favourite Rhinos gear on as well, and include any social media they might be on as we would love to give them a shout out on our accounts to let them know we are thinking of them too.
Simply email email@example.com with as much detail as you can and we will do the rest.
Stay safe and thank you to all our key workers and carers.
