Aussie NRL Fan Sets Up GoFundMe Page To Pay For Christchurch Mosque Victim's Team Membership Fees

Aussie NRL Fan Sets Up GoFundMe Page To Pay For Christchurch Mosque Victim's Team Membership Fees

Dylan Larkins, wherever you are, we solute you.

The Australian NRL fan has thrown his support behind the Christchurch mosque victims - and in particular Ahad Nabi.

Nabi, whose father was killed at the Al Noor Mosque in last year's Christchurch mass shooting, will now have something to look forward to after Larkins set up a GoFundMe page to help his fellow NRL supporter.

Nabi made headlines across the world last week when he delivered a passionate, controlled and powerful victim impact statement in New Zealand's High Court - all while wearing a Warriors jersey.

His emotional message was heard by millions - including Larkins - as people rallied behind Nabi and the other victims.

And now Larkins has gone a step further and set up a GoFundMe page with the hope of raising AU$900 for a Warriors' membership for Nabi as well as some fresh merchandise.

"The whole COVID situation made me take a look at myself and think what can I do for other people?" Larkins told the NZ Herald.

"It doesn't have to be big. So when I was watching Ahad in court pour his heart out I thought what can I do that's more personal than just sending some money off? I saw him in his Warriors jersey and thought I wonder if we could get him a membership or something to enjoy coming up... I just wanted something for him to look forward to after a traumatic couple of years.

"Everyone can make a change. I thought bugger it, I'll set it up."

As of today, people have donated over $2125 to the page - smashing the initial $900 target.

And it's now understood that the Warriors are even trying to reach out to Nabi.

"We're endeavouring to find him, to reach out with something for him," the club's chief executive Cameron George said.

"The club has been through tough times and I know we have been inspired by the mosque victims' stories and courage."
