Charity


Over the years, Lee has used his status as a professional Sportsman to help a number of charity's and good causes. Besides his Charity work associated with the Warrington Wolves, he has helped raise thousands for selected charities, often using his Twitter Account as a form of communication to reach out to his near 30,000 followers.

“Having played Rugby League all my life, I can’t imagine what it must be like to have a body that doesn’t work properly and have to watch from the sidelines, which is why I want to do all I can to help girls with Rett Syndrome. If I can do my little bit, hopefully we can get awareness about Rett Syndrome out there”

Lee Briers has pledged his support to Reverse Rett by becoming an Ambassador for the charity. Briers has chosen to get behind our cause because of his longtime friendship with Founding Trustee, Andy Stevenson, fellow dad and father of Beth age 11 who has Rett.

Rett Syndrome is a debilitating disorder which most often strikes previously healthy little girls just after they have learned to walk and say a few words. As they grow Rett Syndrome then begins to drag their development backwards.

Since the launch of Reverse Rett in July 2010, Lee has already shown his support in a number of ways, most notably by appearing in a Naked Golf Calendar for 2011, with a number of other Warrington players and former players. He has also supported Andy and the charity at large throughout the Bald Mountain Crusade, tweeting to help the Balds win the national JustTextGiving competition.
