The NSWRL has partnered with Red Energy for the 2019 Hogs For The Homeless tour which will culminate with the delivery of a bus for the Gadara School for children with disabilities in Tumut.
The Hogs For The Homeless tour started at Harley-Davidson Brookvale on Friday 15 February and will cover more than 10 regional areas and almost 4000 kilometres over nine days.
Red Energy, a 100 per cent Australian-owned electricity and gas provider, has been a major contributor to a much-needed bus that will be delivered to the Gadara School in Tumut on Thursday 21 February.
“We are delighted to be involved with a charity that benefits the lives of young people, particularly across regional NSW,’’ Red Energy Regional Business Development Manager Neil Thew said.
‘’Hogs For The Homeless has raised almost $700,000 for the Youth off the Streets program, which is an amazing achievement, so hats off to Freddy (Brad Fittler) and the boys involved.
“Our assistance with the Gadara School bus will enhance the lives of the students attending the school, providing better learning opportunities for all.”
