Last Saturday at Henson Park as part of Newtown RLFC’s annual Ladies Day promotion where the club pays tribute to the enormous role played by women in the game, the Jets raised $695 for St Vincent De Paul’s Elsie Women’s Refuge.
Located in the Inner West of Sydney, Elsie Women’s Refuge is a crisis accommodation and case management service for women with children who have experienced domestic/family violence. It provides safe shared accommodation with individual bedrooms. Australia’s oldest Rugby League club was only too happy to make a contribution to this very worthy cause.
