LOTTERY manager Karl Pratt underwent a 'Grade One Allover' on Sunday afternoon, helping to raise over £1,500 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Pratt, a former Bradford Bulls player who now heads up the club's Big One Lottery, took up the challenge alongside a budding Super League star.

Bradford Dudley Hill Under-14s talent Haydan Harrison lost his grandfather, aged 53, to cancer and has since taken it upon himself to raise money to help fund future cancer care, research and support.

Pratt joined young Harrison and a bunch of his team-mates at Dudley's Hill Neil Hunt Memorial Ground home over the weekend, as everyone taking part received a close shave!

“I was delighted and honoured to have been asked to participate, it was for a great cause and it proved a fantastic day,” said Pratt, who returned to the club in August.

“Haydan has taken on a lot of responsibility, at such a young age, and deserves to succeed. He is a real inspiration.

“To raise such an amount was a phenomenal achievement and we could not be more thankful for those who sponsored and donated.

Haydan’s mother Martine, who looked on, admits the day could not have gone any better and is grateful for the work of Pratt and the Bulls in raising awareness of the fundraiser.

She added: “It was a fantastic day and there were people getting their chests and legs waxed too!

“We are very proud and grateful to have raised over £1,500 for such a good cause.

“To have someone like Karl taking part was brilliant, the boys loved him and we are grateful for him taking his time to be part of such an important day for us as a family.”
