Rhinos sponsor Leeds Building Society has donated its space on the team’s home shirt to Samaritans for their game against St Helens next month.

It is part of a campaign to help raise awareness of mental wellbeing and a component of a two-year partnership with Samaritans to raise £250,000 to enhance the technology available to volunteers across the charity’s branches.

Leeds chief executive Gary Hetherington said: “Mental wellbeing is a key focus for our club and the Leeds Rhinos Foundation so it’s great to work with Leeds Building Society and Samaritans to help raise awareness among our fans at the game and for those watching on TV.

“A number of our current and former players have spoken candidly about their own mental wellbeing and I know they are looking forward to pulling on these unique shirts for the game against St Helens.”
