From their official Facebook page, the club posted: “Wow – the crowdfunder to help support Kato’s loved ones has now passed the £10,000 mark. Your kindness is incredible. Let’s keep on spreading the word.”
But that was not all the Widnes Vikings have done.
The club that Ottio signed with last year had his name printed on their all jerseys and held a minute’s silence before their 62-0 triumph over Whitehaven at Halton Stadium this weekend.
