Saints will play in a one-off pink shirt to throw their weight behind the fight to beat breast cancer.

Royce Simmons' men will take to the field against Catalans on Friday July 15 in the special kit to help raise money for the Burney Breast Unit at St Helens Hospital and promote Breast Cancer Awareness.

As well as a collection at the Engage Super League tie, the players' match shirts will be auctioned to raise funds.

Replicas of the superb looking shirt will be on sale from June 1 (subject to supplier delivery), with pre-orders being taken from Saturday May 7 in store and online at the Saints Superstore.

And proceeds of each shirt sold will go to the Burney Breast Unit.

The replica shirts are being produced in strictly limited quantities so don't delay, order today!

The dedicated team at the Burney Breast Unit - who helped launch Saints home and away kits at the beginning of the season - are committed to providing patients with the best quality of care.

Based at St Helens Hospital, highly skilled staff detect and treat more than 200 cases of breast cancer a year.

This renowned unit has its own x-ray facilities and provides a one-stop clinic with rapid access for patients requiring screening and a range of treatments.

Patients treated at the Trust benefit from a unique collaboration between the Burney Breast Unit and the Mersey Regional Plastic Surgery Unit at Whiston Hospital. This enables surgeons to perform breast cancer surgery within the same operation as breast reconstructive surgery, leading to faster recovery times and better cosmetic results for patients.

Miss Leena Chagla, Consultant Surgeon and Lead Clinician at the Burney Breast Unit, said: "I would like to thank St Helens Rugby Football Club and Saints fans for supporting the Unit in this way and helping to raise awareness of breast cancer.

"We hope that this will help remind ladies to attend regular breast screening, as early diagnosis can save lives."

Tony Colquitt, Saints CEO, added: "We are delighted to support the Burney Breast Unit and raise the profile of breast cancer awareness across our community.

"The pink shirt will be a spectacular sight at the Catalan game and we hope it will inspire people to get into the pink spirit and support this valuable cause.

"We will be encouraging everyone to ‘don the pink'!"

"Pink Vee" Replica Shirts will be available to pre-order commencing Saturday May 7, with stock scheduled for delivery June 1.

Shirts are available in limited quantities in sizes Adults (Size S-4XL), Ladies (Size 8-18), Kids (Ages 6-14).
