FAMOUS NRL faces will be heading to Leeton for a good cause next week.
Brad Fittler, Danny Buderus, Josh Perry and Tim Brasher will be roaring into town on February 23 as part of the Hogs for the Homeless initiative.
Hogs for the Homeless has these stars and others heading off on their motorcycles to raise awareness of Father Chris Riley’s Youth Off the Streets program.
As part of that they will be dropping by Leeton to chat about the issue, but also to watch Leeton’s youngsters go round on the footy field, as well as participate in a meet and greet.
Leeton Junior Rugby League’s Kristy Jackson said all community members were welcome to attend and meet the stars.
“It’s for everyone, you don’t have to be involved with rugby league at all … we want to see as many people as possible there,” she said.
An under 12s and 14s nines competition will be held at the town ovals on the day from 4pm.
This will be followed by a barbecue and meet and greet at the Leeton Soldiers Club from around 6pm.
The idea is not only raise awareness, but also kick off this year’s season in style.
“We’re really looking forward to it,” Jackson said.
“I know the kids are really excited to. It’s a great thing for Leeton to have the ride coming through here.”
