Australian and New South Wales rugby league legends Brad Fittler, Nathan Hindmarsh and Steve Menzies will visit Forbes on February 16 as part of their ‘Hogs for the Homeless’ tour. The tour will see the three former National Rugby League players visit local schools, conduct rugby league football clinics, before arriving at the Forbes Services Club for a fundraising dinner.
‘Hogs for the Homeless’ is an initiative formed by Brad Fittler in partnership with Harley-Davidson to support Father Chris Riley’s Youth Off the Streets campaign, and aims to tackle homelessness in NSW. Fittler, Hindmarsh and Menzies will ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles across the state on their tour to regional areas. Mr Fittler said in a statement he looked forward to the tour. “It’s a very worthwhile cause and it is always wonderful to see so many rugby league fans throughout this state come together to help out,” he said.
Forbes Services Club manager David Fitzgerald said he was excited to host part of the event at his club. “We anticipate the community at large will support this opportunity to meet some NRL Legends and to help raise funds,” he said. “Our commitment to helping the boys raise much needed funds it is donate $7 from every $20 ticket sold to attend a Q&A dinner at the club.”
