Councillor Heather Hudson raised a total of over £6500 for the RFL Benevolent Fund during her Mayoral year which ended in 2010. Heather was a close friend of Adam Watene’s family and saw first hand the work done to assist Adam’s family following his tragic death. Heather had asked Adam before his death to act as her consort on official engagements during her Mayoral year.
Therefore she felt it absolutely imperative that the RFL Benevolent fund be a beneficiary of her work during her Mayoral year. Both she and her husband Clive Hudson are Wakefield Councillors and support the game of Rugby League throughout the Wakefield district. Heather added “it has been a great pleasure for me to support the RFL Benevolent fund during my year as Mayor and we intend to support their work as individuals and supporters of rugby league for many years to come”.
