Thank-you to everyone who made a donation in support of ChildLine, a service of the NSPCC, at Saturday's game between Tigers and Sale Sharks at Welford Road.

All 12 Guinness Premiership clubs were involved in family fund-raising activities at the weekend’s fixtures.

Organisers collected donations and money raised from sales of a special ChildLine key-rings around Welford Road, while Tigers supporters Gary and Julie Dawson paid £255 for a giant NPSCC rugby ball signed by the squad, all to benefit the NSPCC Child’s Voice Appeal, a £50million fundraising campaign to answer more calls to ChildLine and the NSPCC Helpline for adults worried about a child.

Julie Dawson was able to collect the signed ball from Tigers’ NSPCC ambassador Richard Blaze and teammate Boris Stankovich on the Welford Road pitch at half-time.
