Cuthbertson to auction kit for children in hospital

Leeds Rhinos favourite Adam Cuthbertson will auction his 2015 training wear to raise funds to personally give children at Leeds General Infirmary presents on Christmas Day.

The 30 year-old was a contender for the Man of Steel last season after he helped Leeds to Challenge Cup and Grand Final success.

To help children who are unfortunate enough to spend Christmas Day in hospital, Cuthbertson has vowed to auction items personally given to him for both final appearances and also signed playing shirts signed and worn by him last season.

Cuthbertson came up with the idea after the squad visited the hospital and he wanted to give some of the children something to cheer about this Christmas.

“We were down at the Children’s Hospital the other week and I got talking to the guys who won’t be able to go home for Christmas,” he told the club’s official website. “I’m a long way from home too so I just wanted to do something on Christmas Day that would help cheer them up a bit.”
