Kitbag 2017 Fundraiser

Introducing the Hills Junior Rugby Union’s ‘Kitbag 2017’ as the annual fundraiser for our Club. 

The Hills Junior Rugby Union Club is one of the largest and oldest Junior Rugby Union Clubs in the Greater Western Sydney region with well over a thousand players, siblings, parents, grandparents, coaches, volunteers and administrators.  And it is important that we have a sound business management approach, mutually beneficial partnerships, strong community engagement and a sustainable financial base from which to continue the Club’s mission of promoting the global game of Rugby Union by attracting, retaining, growing and developing players at all ages.

This year, our Club sought support from our own membership as well as businesses within our local community in the form of donations of goods, products and/or services for the Club’s ‘Kitbag 2017’ fundraising raffle, and we had an absolutely amazing response.  The Kitbag was, quite literally, an Asics Kitbag that wasfull of donated goods, products and services vouchers from businesses that all have a real and tangible value to them. There was only 1 Kitbag and only 1 prize - worth $1,988 in value.

The Winner of the Kitbag was drawn at one of the Club’s major community sporting events of 2017 – The King of the Hills Competition for U8 and U9 teams, in July.  Congratulations to the Brown Family in the Under 10's.

One Raffle Ticket booklet was given to each Family and the Club was able to raise $1,710 in total from the sale of the tickets - so thanks to each and every one of you who assisted with the sale and purchase of the tickets to support the Club.  

A number of ticket books were received by Friday 30 June, and they all went into the draw for a Family Pass (2A/2C) to Featherdale Wildlife Park (valued at $85).  Congratulations to the Smith Family in U9's who won that raffle.

A massive thanks to all the Club's supporters who assisted with the donations of goods and/or services as part of the Rafffle. We thank you and look forward to working with you again in the future.

Thanks so much for taking the time to support the Club that supports the growth and development of your kid(s), and through it, this great game.  If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Peter O'Farrell at, or on 0468 988 438.
