Alyssa Healy will be joined by WBBL teammates to support the Club’s fundraising festival on Wednesday 8th August at NO.1 Sports Oval, Tamworth, from 3pm to 6pm.

The Club is encouraging the local community to show their support to the campaign by attending the festival for an afternoon of fun activities for the whole family.

Rides, raffles and cricket coaching will be available and entry to the festival will be charged at a gold coin.
 
The ‘R U Aware, We Care’ campaign was recently launched as a joint initiative by Radio Station 88.9 FM and Tamworth Regional Council to offer a helping hand to the farming families of NSW who are experiencing extreme drought on their land.
 
The fundraising festival has already received significant support from theTamworth business community, including Wingham Beef Exporters Australia and Paddock to Plate Butchers who have donated a large quantity of food to the BBQ.
 
“It’s a great opportunity for us to come to a regional NSW area and show the community that we are thinking of them,” Sixers General Manager Jodie Hawkins said.
 
“The current drought situation is hard to comprehend for us in the city so to come to the community and give back in some small way is really important for the Club.
 
“We hope we can raise some money to support the farmers who are really doing it tough, as well as show the community a great afternoon out.”

Tamworth Council Mayor Col Murray said the farming community would be grateful for the support.

“The support and efforts of the Sydney Sixers for the R U Aware We Care drought appeal is appreciated for farming families across our region, and the community of Tamworth look forward to coming long to support the event,” Murray said.
