"Rugby League Cares was established to provide assistance to Rugby League’s broad community. We hope that the Rugby League community will join us and give their support to this great initiative which provides a day to remember for the children and their families."
Chris Rostron, General Manager, Rugby League Cares
"As a club we recognise how influential we are in the local community and we feel it is important that we build on this for the good of others. When we heard of the Box 4 Kids project we didn’t hesitate in offering our support to such a worthy cause. Rugby League is at the heart of our town and becomes a big part of people’s lives. We hope the Wolves’ family will join us in welcoming the children and their families to The Halliwell Jones Stadium and we hope their match-day experience with us can raise a smile."
Alex Wilson, Sales Manager, Warrington Wolves
"Elliot was so lucky to have the amazing chance of visiting the Box 4 Kids at Liverpool Football Club. He was a fanatical supporter of the Mighty Reds and described his night in the box as the "best night of his life”! As a parent, to witness that joy on your child's face is irreplaceable."
Jackie Wild, Mother of Elliot who attended the box two months before he sadly passed away
"I think it’s a fantastic gesture from Barrie. These kids have probably been deprived of an awful lot of things that people take for granted and for them to come along, sit in comfort, have a bit of food and hopefully watch Liverpool win, then I’m sure it will be a dream come true."
"I cannot thank the Wells Sports Foundation enough for this amazingly generous gesture. Our patients at Alder Hey have been one of the main beneficiaries of the Box 4 Kids scheme and it has given some very poorly children the experience of a lifetime. They report back, without exception, of the wonderful time they had, and always mention 'that nice man Barrie"
Chris Done, Senior Fundraising Manager, Imagine Appeal
"The Box 4 Kids initiative a wonderful way of giving young children who are seriously ill or physically challenged a very special day out. They can attend a big football match or major sporting event and be treated first-hand to be a VIP experience and an unrivalled view of the action on the pitch from ‘their own’ hospitality box. Barrie Wells has a very kind heart"
Brian Barwick, Chairman of the RFL and former Chief Executive of The FA
