Tomorrow (Thu 9th Jan) around 20 semi-trailer loads of hay are leaving Yarram heading for the bushfire affected areas of East Gippsland. The communities of Woodside, Yarram and Welshpool have been working incredibly hard to bring this hay donation together, with every likelihood there will be more to come.
Gormandale FNC and Glengarry FNC have already organised a significant amount of hay from these areas with again around 20 semi-trailer loads of hay already being delivered. Any additional donations of hay can be directed to Scott Langly’s property at 1132 Crainbrook Rd Glengarry for distribution by Heyfield Lions Club.

All other clubs across the NGFNL have a variety of fund-raising activities in the planning stages with GERF (Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund) being the primary recipient. More details on these activities to come.
North Gippsland Football Netball League President David Kyle said “The response from all clubs involved in the league has been incredibly humbling. On-field there is the obvious rivalry between clubs; however, off-field the league is made up of a very close group of community-minded people who rally to support the broader Gippsland community very quickly and selflessly”.
