Tweed footy clubs tie at top
TWO junior rugby league clubs will share in more than $16,000 prize money this week.
As part of mortgage broker Aussie’s Lend a Hand program, Seagulls and Bilambil junior rugby league clubs tied for the top award across Australia.
Aussie Tweed franchisee Rod Jackson said club members had to visit Aussie for a no obligation appointment for the club to receive $100 and the top club would receive an extra $5000.
“Both clubs had 58 appointments and because it was a tie have received $2500 each for a total of $8300 to each club for new equipment and operating costs,” Mr Jackson said.
“We will now expand the program to all junior sport and are calling on clubs to get involved.”
Bilambil Junior Rugby League Club representative Andy Curry said the money would go towards training gear.
“It will also go to finishing the players’ dug out and other things to assist the kids,” Mr Curry said.
“It’s fantastic for junior sport in Tweed and it is great to share the top title with another local club.”
Aussie’s founder and executive chairman John Symond said the program had the potential to be a windfall for struggling clubs to get funds.
