Put your shirt on charity bid

A SPECIAL shirt will be worn by Worcester Warriors in a bid to raise thousands of pounds for a city-based hospice.

The rugby club has continued its support to Acorn’s Children’s Hospice with the creation of the kit, which was officially unveiled last week.

Players joined children at the Bath Road hospice to design the sky blue strip which will replace Warriors’ regular home jersey for their Aviva Premiership match against Saracens on Saturday, December 28.

Carol Hart, community foundation manager at Warriors, said: “The design has words which capture the meaning of Acorns from the families who use their services.

“These words are printed on the arms of the shirt and the colour was chosen by the children.

“It has a duck design, which is particularly important as it featured on nearly all of the draft designs created by the players and children.”

Warriors star Josh Drauniniu urged supporters to go out and buy the shirt, which costs £55, as they look to generate funds for the hospice.

“This season’s shirt looks really good and the lads are looking forward to playing in it against Saracens,” he said.

“We have a very close relationship with Acorns and the people down there are fantastic so hopefully this shirt will fly off the shelf and raise a nice sum of money for them.”
