Special artwork created for page 2 of WRL Charity Magazine

Some special artwork from rugby league fan Louise Woodward-Styles has been donated to the charity magazine and is being used inside on page 2.

 

Special montages of Danny Jones's and Scott Bessant's playing career have been created by Louise for the publication. Her montage of Danny Jones was released via her Twitter account in January but the one of Scott will remain a surprise until the magazine has been released.

Scott's sister Sian Chere has said: "The montage looks amazing. Thank you so much Louise for doing this. We're overwhelmed with how much everyone is doing to help bring our Scotty home."

The charity publication has been printed for two important rugby league causes.

“Scott’s Angels” was created to raise money for the family of former Torfaen Tigers rugby league player and coach Scott Bessant. In the early hours of August 13th 2017, Scott was found unconscious with multiple fractures to his skull, a fractured neck, broken ribs and a fractured pelvis. No witnesses have come forward to any attack and the police have found nothing. Scott, a father of two, is alive but is in a vegetative state. His family and friends continue to fundraise to give him some quality of life.

“The Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund” raises money to purchase defibrillators for community rugby league clubs and junior teams across the country. These defibrillators cost around £1,000 each and provide potentially life-saving treatment to anyone suffering a cardiac arrest. The charity is named after the Halifax-born Wales RL international who died on the field whilst playing for Keighley Cougars on May 3rd 2015 after suffering a cardiac arrest that was caused by a previous undetected, hereditary, heart disease.
