It was a day of celebration for Luke Bryan and his Mum Christine as representatives of the Steve Prescott Foundation and the Rugby League Benevolent Fund attended the formal opening of Luke’s new home in Haydock.

Thanks to a £80,000 donation from the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF) through the Rugby League Benevolent Fund Luke has now moved into a specially adapted home in Haydock. The Rugby League Benevolent Fund, one of the charities supported by the SPF, helps players who have been affected by serious injury.

Luke says his new home will give him the independence he craves and a new lease of life.  The former rugby league player was paralysed from the neck down following a devastating injury in 1996 while playing for Haydock under 18s.

2016 is a milestone year for the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF) as we have reached a million pounds of donations to our nominated charities the Rugby League Benevolent Fund, The Christie and the SPF Special Causes Fund.

The latest epic challenge inspired by Steve Prescott MBE is the Everest Base Camp Challenge 2016 sponsored by the Manchester based Spectrum Group, a leading supplier of support services in the industrial sector. The challenge follows on from the fantastic success of the Spectrum Kilimanjaro Challenge of 2015 which raised over £150,000 for the SPF and saw the team ratified by the Guinness Book of World Records as taking part in the world’s highest altitude game of rugby league.

Linzi Prescott sets off on the Spectrum Everest Base Camp Challenge this week and has the support of Dr Mark Saunders consultant clinical oncologist at The Christie. The challenge involves an eleven day trek to the Nepal Everest Base Camp then onwards to "Kala Pattar" to reach a finishing height of 5645 meters above sea level.

Staff from Haydock-based Handepay used rugby league’s showpiece Grand Final to smash their £10,000 charity target set in May 2016 – seven months ahead of schedule. The Grand Final-themed sponsored walk helped them take their fundraising grand total for The Steve Prescott Foundation to £13,000 in just five months.

23 Handepay staff walked the 18 miles from their office to Old Trafford on Saturday to raise £5,500 – the equivalent of more than £300 per mile – before enjoying a well-deserved seat to watch Wigan Warriors take the Super League title, with hospitality provided by Hotel Football.

The Steve Prescott Foundation is really delighted to announce that the Horizon Defibrillator Award will be presented to one local community group at this year’s SolarKing Commercial Pride of St Helens Awards on Friday 11th November.

Local community groups are invited to apply for a defibrillator for their group and the winner will be presented with the award by Lizzie Jones. Lizzie is the wife of former Keighley Cougars and Wales International half back Danny Jones who tragically collapsed and died in May 2015 as a result of an undiagnosed heart condition.
