This local derby won’t be like any usual game, with our hospice playing a major role in the planning and delivery of activities in and around the ground.

It’s certain to be an extraordinary day for supporters to get involved and raise funds for the charity.

Many of our staff are long-time supporters of the Salford Reds, with season ticket holders and volunteers among them.

We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Salford Red Devils again, after the team met some of the staff by giving out Christmas dinner to them at the Little Hulton hospice last year.

This day will mark the next phase in our relationship and will raise money for the ongoing care that is provided by our hospice to the local community.

The takeover day will include lots of fun for families and spectators to get involved in to show their support, with more exciting plans to be announced soon!

Heather Bennett, our In-Memory and Legacy Fundraiser, says: “We are so excited to be officially partnering with Salford Red Devils.

“We’ve been connected to the club over the last few years with some of the team coming to serve us Christmas dinner in December. This was a brilliant way to meet some of the lads who really care about the hospice and saw first-hand the importance of our services for the people in their community.

“We can’t wait for the takeover day on Sunday 16th July to meet supporters of Salford Red Devils to talk about the work we do, especially in the Little Hulton area where many fans are from. Make sure you come along to the game for some family fun and to raise money for an amazing cause!”

Celebrating their 150th anniversary across 2023, the Red Devils have started the Betfred Super League season full of optimism under Head Coach, Paul Rowley and are looking to improve on their run to the semi-final in 2022.

Marcelle Lock, Events Manager at Salford Red Devils, has added: “The St Ann’s Hospice takeover day is yet another example of the great work by Salford Red Devils in the community.

“To support such a worthy cause makes it even better and I can’t wait to see how our fanbase come together and make the day a huge success!”
