ROUSE HILL RHINOS PINK DAY

I had the honour of once again attending the incredible Rouse Hill Rhinos Junior Rugby League Pink Day event – where they turned their home ground at Wrights Road – Pink!

This event annually supports the Breast Cancer Foundation and a second organisation which this year was the Black Dog Institute.

There were over 450 players from 34 teams – each wearing a sponsored and personalised pink jersey – playing 16 games on the field, and a total of approximately 600 people enjoying all of the extra activities such as rides, stalls and raffles – raising over $20,000 for these two causes.

Since the Club commenced running this event in 2012, the Club has raised over $110,000.00. A contribution that should be recognised.

COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE GRANTS – NOW OPEN The NSW Government Community Infrastructure Grants are open to communities across NSW to support the building, renovation and fit-out of infrastructure. Grants open 3 times during the year – but applicants can only apply in one round every year.

Infrastructure Grants can be used for costs such as construction, the purchase of capital equipment and professional fees.
