The North Canberra Bears Rugby League Football Club in Kaleen ACT in conjunction with the Steampacket Hotel and the West Nelligen Community Brigade, have secured significant donations through a major fundraising effort to provide around 100 Christmas hampers to assist those across the Eurobodalla o are still struggling and were most affected by the 2020 bushfires.
It is planned that the hampers will be delivered via a motorcade, travelling from Canberra to Nelligen on Saturday 19 December 2020 and the Steampacket Hotel will store them until the recipients can collect them. The plan is that the motorcade will leave from the North Canberra Bear Bar at 9am, to arrive at the Steampacket Hotel by 11am. Anyone wishing to be part of this charity event is welcome to attend the Steampacket Hotel from midday on Saturday.
A list has been provided to the West Nelligen Community Brigade of the families adversely affected in this region and the brigade will be choosing 100 families to receive a hamper drawn out of a barrel.
The West Nelligen Community Brigade extend huge thank you to the following Canberra businesses and locals who have donated generously to make this possible.
