WARRINGTON Wolves will showcase a mental wellbeing charity campaign during their home fixture against St Helens.

The campaign is the Peace in Mind fundraiser, set up in memory of Brianna Ghey, who was killed at the age of 16 in February in Warrington.

It is being run by Brianna's mum, Esther, in partnership with the Warrington Guardian - the aim is to raise funds to provide more mental health support for schoolchildren.

The campaign has the backing of figures such as Boy George, as well as Warrington Borough Council, the town's MPs, and now Warrington Wolves and the Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation.

In a statement, Warrington Wolves said: "The Warrington Wolves Club paid a moving tribute to Brianna when local player Danny Walker and official knife crime ambassador wore a warm-up shirt bearing Brianna’s name before their first home game against Leeds Rhinos. 

"Following this, the club were approached by the Warrington Guardian about raising awareness of the campaign amongst the Warrington Wolves loyal fanbase."

The club added: "The Warrington Wolves have invited Brianna’s mum, Esther to attend the team’s final training session before the St Helens game where she will talk to the players and coaching staff about the importance of the campaign to help children look after their own emotional wellbeing.

"Following this, the campaign will be showcased at the Warrington vs St Helens game on Friday, September 15, where supporters will be encouraged to unite behind the fundraiser."

James Howes, health and wellbeing manager at the Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation, said: "The Warrington Wolves and Warrington Wolves Foundation are passionate about investing in mindfulness training within primary schools to help develop more compassionate young people.

"By supporting the Peace in Mind campaign in Warrington, we will be sowing the seeds of mindfulness early, to cultivate a generation equipped to embrace challenges, live more in the present moment, and develop tools to help relax when life becomes challenging.”
