BALMAIN JUNIOR RUGBY – SUPPORT A GREAT CAUSE

 

Supporting our community has always been an integral part of the Cobden & Hayson ethos and this particularly applies to getting behind our young locals and the stars of tomorrow. We’re proud supporters of Balmain Junior Rugby, who last month hosted their Inaugural Rugby Gala Dinner fundraiser. The dinner raised money for Balenabelo village in Fiji, where the U11s will be visiting this July as part of their tour. As beautiful as Fiji is, more than 50% of the population live on less than $17 a week and can’t meet their basic needs, so this is a great opportunity to contribute much-needed funds to Balenabelo’s school and community building program.

 

 

Last week we were invited along to a training session where we gifted the club an additional $2,000 donation on behalf of Cobden & Hayson which will go towards the club and the teams trip to Fiji. Director of Cobden & Hayson, Matthew Hayson said “it could not go to a better cause. These kids have done all they can to support others and we could not be more proud of their ambition. It’s what great communities do.”

 

 

Since its inception in 2011, Balmain Junior Rugby has gone from strength to strength, becoming a force to be reckoned with in the Inner West. The club’s values closely align with our own here at C&H, so there’s a great synergy between us. Like us, they’re all about teamwork, strong communication, resilience and respect. Importantly, they promote inclusiveness and ensure all players enjoy the game while developing key skills that help establish a strong foundation for life.

 

 

Balmain Rugby has teams across all junior ages for boys and girls wanting to pull on the black and gold, starting at the U6s and developing through to the U15s. The club is also part of the representative pathway to Sydney University through its Junior Player Program, which commences at U10s and offers opportunities to play Representative Rugby.

 

 

We’re behind every kick, and every goal. We’re behind supporting our local community.
