Storylines: Growing hope

Hope is a fragile thing in 2021. With the current pandemic and the uncertainty in so many aspects of life, our hope is being shadowed by fear. It is profoundly affecting our humanity.

Local rugby league teams, fans as well as players past and present are invited to join Men of League’s northern rivers committee for their charity Golf Day this Sunday October 16, at Ballina Golf Club.

Organised by the Northern Rivers Men of League committee, the day is a chance for the local rugby league community to get together for a social round of golf, while raising important funds for the Foundation and its work, according to NSW state manager, Stuart Raper.

‘This is always a great golf day run by the northern rivers committee and there will be a lot of fun had by everyone. There are loads of great activities planned for the day, including lunch, raffles, prizes and dinner.

‘The Men of League Foundation cares for those from within the rugby league community who may have fallen on hard times and need some assistance.

‘We help people with a range of services from visits to those who may be feeling socially isolated to household improvements and financial support.

‘It’s also a good opportunity to get your mates together for a catch up after footy season,’ he said.
