With parts of country NSW facing the toughest drought in decades, Warringah Juniors are hosting a Bush to Beach Rugby Gala in support of drought affected country NSW rugby teams.
Sporting teams in rural areas are often the social backbone of a town and in tough times they are essential for keeping communities together and their young people supported. The weekend also serves to give the kids something to look forward to and take their minds off the drought at home (If only for a weekend).
The aim of the weekend is to raise enough funds to cover rugby registrations and running costs for the visiting country clubs in the 2019 rugby season. Our aim is to raise a total of $10,000 – and keep kids playing the game of rugby!
