Sharks star Ricky Leutele, himself the father of three young children, one born at Sutherland Hospital, made a return visit earlier this week to help launch the new Sharks Baby Memberships.

Leutele dropped by the maternity ward at Sutherland Hospital to present the newest ‘Shark’, Piper Gross who was born on May 20, with a free Sharks Baby Membership while welcoming her into the Sharks family.

Beginning this week, babies born at Sutherland Hospital will be presented with a Sharks Certificate, while over the next 50 days all newborns will also receive a free Sharks Baby Membership.

The new Sharks Baby Membership, valued at $50, includes the certificate, a beanie and plush ball.

Each baby born at the hospital will also receive a Sharks teddy knitted in black, white and blue courtesy of the Lions Club.

On average, some 1,200 babies are born at Sutherland Hospital every year.

Following on from the Baby Membership launch promotion, the certificates will be ongoing and will offer the Sharks Baby Membership at a discounted rate.

Welcome your newest addition into your household and into the Sharks family at the same time with a new Sharks Baby Membership.
