A CHARITY t-shirt designed by bosses at Oldham Roughyeds sold more than 100 to boost NHS good causes.

Club officials drew up the garment to honour frontline medics during the coronavirus crisis.

Assistant coach Brendan Sheridan, who endured his own battle with Covid-19 at Pinderfields Hospital in West Yorkshire, is among those who have reason to be thankful to health service heroes.

In just nine days on sale, the Oldham RLFC t-shirts were dispatched as far afield as Kent in the south to Spennymoor and Sunderland further north, with orders also coming in from Surrey, Suffolk, Wiltshire and Cambridge.

Half of the profits were being donated to NHS charities from the sale proceeds.

Club chairman Chris Hamilton said: "“Given the short time available and the ‘spread’ across the UK, we are very happy indeed at the public response.

"We would like to thank everyone who has taken part and who will be wearing shirts that reflect the wonderful work of the NHS at all times but especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.”
