The St George Illawarra Dragons have confirmed further details regarding their two-day community relief tour of the New South Wales' South Coast, in response to the devastating bushfires that recently occurred in the area.
The entire NRL squad and club staff will convene in Batemans Bay on Tuesday, January 28 for a family fun day at Hanging Rock Sports Complex (2:30pm-5pm); there locals will be treated to an afternoon of activities, clinics and a meet and greet with their favourite Dragons players.
The 70-plus Dragons representatives present will spend Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning split between Ulladulla, Batemans Bay, Narooma and Bermagui; with an eye to help assist with the cash flow collapse on the South Coast.
A number of Dragons players and staff will attend the Lake Conjola community BBQ on Tuesday night.
The Dragons will spend Wednesday, January 29 engaging within the community through school, community groups and refuge centre visits as well as assist with any properties, businesses and homes in need.
The Dragons' community engagements will cover Milton, Ulladulla, Lake Conjola, Mogo, Maula Bay, Sunshine Bay, Batemans Bay, Cobargo, Quaama, Narooma, Bermagui, Moruya and Wandella.
If you know anyone in need of assistance in any of these areas, please do not hesitate to contact the club via email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Dragons were saddened to hear of the suffering caused within these segments of the club's catchment; a region Dragons Community have and will continue in 2020 to frequent in name of delivering important programs such as Best You Can Be. The Dragons Community team will also visit the likes of Bega, Eden and Tathra later in 2020.
The Dragons' community relief tour will also act as an extension to the NRL's Roads to Regions program that will commence in mid-February.
