Supporting Ronald McDonald House Orange
Forbes Rugby is playing its part in the Central West Rugby Fundraising Challenge. This is an initiative supported by Blowes Menswear, who is not only a major sponsor of our competition but also a supporter of RMHC Orange, and has called upon our zone to help raise funds in support of the phenomenal work of Ronald McDonald House Orange.
Since opening in 2015, RMHC Orange has assisted at least 95 families from Forbes and surrounds. All money raised will stay in Orange to support families from the central and far west as their child is receiving specialist and life-saving treatment in Orange Hospital.
