After being impacted by flooding raining in March earlier this year, the difficult decision once again has been made to postpone the A-Plus Contracting Hunter Valley Mining Charity Rugby League Day, due to be held Saturday October 16.
Understandably we know this decision will disappoint many, however the safety of volunteers, staff, and the wider community is paramount. As well as delivery high quality event that we have all come to expect and the current COVID restrictions and uncertainty just do not allow for it at this point in time.
Over the last seven years, this event has become the premier charity rugby league competition held in the New South Wales, raising over $400,000 for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and keeping our crews across Belmont, Tamworth and Lismore ready to respond 24-7 for our community.
“We are committed to doing the right thing by our supporters, and hope you can all come and join us on the field on March 19, 2022. All team/player registration will be simply moved across to the new date along with all sponsor commitment, effectively everything stays the same just a change of date.” said Danny Eather, Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, Regional Partnerships Officer.
“Lastly, on behalf of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service I again expresses our sincere thanks to all players, sponsors, suppliers and volunteers for being so patient and understanding with the postponement, and please continue to stay healthy and safe.” Mr Eather added.
All tickets pre-purchased entry tickets will be valid for on the new date.
