RL star’s gifts to Dawn’s boys

all smiles: Glenn Riley with Callan and Ethan Raynor

By Julie Morgan

The teenagers are the sons of Dawn Raynor, who set up the charity Give Us a Break, to help fund a centre for disabled youngsters.

Glenn Riley, who plays for Warrington, is an ambassador for the Give Us a Break charity and a friend of the Raynor family.

He donated the iPads to the brothers as Callan is leaving next week to take up a two-term assessment at a residential home in Cheshire.

The tablets, Glenn said, would help the twins, who are disabled, keep in touch.

Dawn said: “We wish to say a massive thank you to him.”

She has previously spoken of the daily struggles with Callan’s violence and the emotional stresses on the family.

“It will be bitter-sweet for us when Callan leaves as he is the hub of the house. However, the residential home is an amazing place with specialist staff and space for him to run.

“It will be a complete life-change for us all,’’ she added.

“But we want to do the best for Callan.’’
