Will’s Way charity was established by a 15 year old boy, with help from family and friends who, in September 2016, was diagnosed with a Grade 2 Brain Tumour. He inspired us all with his courage and bravery, this young man is Will Barker, from Stanningley Rugby Club.
The Charity is overwhelmed with the support they have received. The Will’s Way sign is now a regular feature on Sky Sports after a Super League try!
In February 2017, a Limited Edition Picture was painted by a Yorkshire artist, Bob Barker (Will’s Uncle), ‘Where there’s a Will, there’s a Way’, which featured 12 players from Stanningley that has made super league, with Will. The original was auctioned and a large donation was made by the gallery and this, with a lot of other fundraising events since February, has enabled the charity to progress significantly, receiving status in July, with Jamie Peacock MBE, being the charity patron.
