Com­mu­nity backs rugby tour

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

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.
