My name is Matthew King and I broke my neck playing Rugby League in 2004 at the age of 17, and have been left completely paralysed from the neck down. Since my accident, the RFL Benevolent Fund has provided a tremendous amount of financial support which has enabled me to return to university and study for a law degree, and build a career for myself. I painted this Christmas card with my mouth via the use of a mouth stick, and the proceeds from its sale will directly benefit those players unfortunate enough to have sustained a life changing injury playing the game we love.

To order your Christmas cards at £1.00 each, please contact Tina Ward – email- with your order or alternatively write an enclosed cheque to the RFL Benevolent Fund c/o Tina Ward, RFL Headquarters, Red Hall, Red Hall Lane, Leeds, LS17 8NB

Thank you for your support
