Community backs rugby tour
Matamata College’s rugby First XV have been busy fundraising for a tour to Canada in 2015.
The team held a quiz night at the school hall last Wednesday and had tremen- dous community support.
On behalf of the team, college teacher Daryl Bennison thanked the businesses which donated prizes for the event. In total, $10,000 was raised. The tour of Canada is going to cost each player $3500 so the team has been flat out doing farm-type jobs and are still looking for other jobs.
If you can help get in touch with Wayne Dickinson on 888 5081. The paper drive is on again this Saturday, July 5.
Thanks again to the Hinuera-Te Poi Lions. This drive is being raced around by the Te Poi Play Centre. Last month’s drive netted 7.5 tonnes.
