$65 000 Raised for New Kaiapoi Rugby League Pavilion

Last Friday, the Kaiapoi Rugby League Club, which because they now incorporate Rangiora, play as the Northern Bulldogs, ran a highly successful fund-faising luncheon at the Kaiapoi Workingmen’s Club.

As you can see in the heading, they raised an amazing $65 000 from ticket sales, an auction (mainly of Rugby League memorabilia) and donations.

The guest speaker was Ricky Stuart (pictured) – ex-Canberra Raiders, ex-Kangaroo, ex-Kangaroo coach and now coach of the NSW State of Origin team. His was an entertaining talk, full of insights about the game.

Sir Peter Leitch (aka the Mad Butcher) came down from Auckland, and there were a number of ex-Kiwis present.

A great afternoon!
