THE campaign to save Widnes Vikings carries on after a remarkable and inspiring weekend.

The community has come together to show what Vikings mean to the town and all have mucked in with donations ranging from chikdren's pocket money to a mammoth £10,000 from one lifelong supporter.

There have been bucket collections at pubs, junior clubs donating at matches, money collected at special car washes, hair cuts and a big effort to get number enrolled on VIQI.

Another big fundraising event will take place later this evening (Monday 25 January) at the Halton Stadium, from 6.30-8.30pm.

All money raised will be allocated to the VIQI fundraising efforts to help save the club.

The event, which will be open to families and all supporters, will be attended by the Vikings first team players and coaches. Supporters can pay at the door and the suggested minimum donation is £5.

The event will feature many incredible auction and raffle prizes, so please dig deep in the effort to save our club – you could own a piece of Widnes history.

At the weekend, Widnes have secured 810 new VIQI members and the crowd-funder has raised more than £50,000.

That figure was helped by a donation of £10,000 from Vikings fan Matt Taylor.

The backing from Widnes Vikings' supporters and the wider rugby league community has been incredible. 

There have been stories of young supporters selling toys and giving up pocket money to put into the Vikings pot.

There have been plenty of messages of support from players from the past.

Danny Walker, who left the club for neighbours Warrington also sent a message.
