SUPPORTERS clubs in Workington have came together to help in a joint fundraising initiative for their beloved team.

Workington Town RLFC supporters from The Derwent Park Supporters Club, The Travellers Rest Supporters Club and the 'Tash for town' group have came together to help back the club.

Last weekend, the supporters clubs teamed up with Singer and town fan Tony Herald to perform in Workington Town Centre entertaining shoppers with live music and selling raffle tickets with a stellar prize.

The groups were selling tickets for an 'Ed Sheeran Hospitality Package' worth more than £1500.

Singer Tony Herald, said:“Its great to be able to do something to support the club we’ve enjoyed coming out today and raising some funds towards the Ed Sheeran hospitality package.

“ If we’re going to move forward we’ve got to get behind our town and I’d encourage anyone to come out and buy tickets.”

The fundraiser was the brain child of life-long town fan George Andrews, who was delighted to see the supporters groups and players at the club get behind the fundraising.
