Bulldogs to return to Lockyer Valley this Saturday
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs will hand over a cheque for over $100,000 to the people of Queensland's Lockyer Valley when the match-day squad from Friday night's NRL clash against the Brisbane Broncos pay a visit to the flood-devastated region on Saturday.
The Bulldogs Club will donate $35,700 to the Lockyer Valley Regional Council when it visits Gatton and Grantham as part of the visit.
That donation has been matched dollar for dollar by the Ipswich Mayor's Community Fund and Bendigo Bank Community Enterprise Foundation, as part of both organisation's ongoing commitment to helping the Lockyer Valley flood recovery effort, taking the total amount to be donated to $107,170.80.
The Bulldogs visit is the official follow up from the trip made by players David Stagg, Michael Ennis, Ben Barba, Michael Hodgson and Gary Warburton, Club legends Terry Lamb and Hazem El Masri, and Chief Executive Todd Greenberg in the immediate aftermath of the January floods.
