HARIBO are proud to announce that in collaboration with Castleford Tigers, they will bring some happiness to Martin House families. To mark the occasion, Goldbear joined the Castleford Tiger for the opening home game of this season.

Castleford Tigers fans got a glimpse of our Goldbear mascot at their opening home game of this season. Spreading some childlike happiness amongst families at The Mend-a-Hose Jungle, Goldbear greeted fans in the family zone area before the game.

This year, HARIBO UK and Castleford Tigers will work closely to support Martin House Children's Hospice, in creating memorable family moments, as well as raising funds in May at the Catalans Dragons fixture. HARIBO’s longstanding charity partner, Martin House provides free care and support for children and families with life limiting conditions across our locality.

HARIBO Managing Director, Jon Hughes commented, “We are pleased to celebrate the opening of the season, joining Castleford Tigers at their first home game in 2023. We are looking to create some moments of Childlike Happiness for our charity partner Martin House Children's Hospice with the support of the Castleford Tigers Team."

Laura Kirk, Castleford Tigers Commercial Director said 'We're so excited to be working with HARIBO this season. We hope to develop a relationship that goes beyond 2023. HARIBO are one of the most iconic brands in the world and were pleased to be working alongside them to bring joy to the families at Martin House this year.'

Lizzie Philpott, Partnerships Manager at Martin House, said: “One of the roles of Martin House is to give families experiences where they can make memories to treasure. Thanks to this generous gift from HARIBO and wonderful support from Castleford Tigers will help dozens of families who need the support of Martin
House experience the thrill of watching a live sports match."
