Forest Rugby Charity Day 2017
Forest Rugby working with the community to make a difference!
Forest Rugby Club is proud and excited to announce its 2017 charity partners – The Manly Community Centre (MCC) and Bushlink – a part of Northside Enterprise Inc. Charity Day will be celebrated on 5 August 2017 at our home game at Melwood Oval against University of NSW.
In addition to JAC Electrical, as the charity day gold sponsor, and Packsize Pty Ltd, as the charity day silver sponsor, we hope everyone in the Forest Rugby community will join us to help raise funds and awareness for some very worthy causes.
Whilst no doubt Rugby is a key focus of the Club, the Committee is passionate about its role and responsibility to contribute more broadly to our community and society in general. As such, we have partnered with the MCC to make a difference in two very important areas of domestic violence and homelessness. Funds raised will go directly to supporting these specific areas of MCC’s strategic focus within our local community.
Bushlink, is dedicated to creating real and valued employment for people with disability. We are privileged to partner with such an amazing organisation and help to directly improve life outcomes for people with disability in our community.
