There will be a curtain raiser game for junior players followed by the main game for senior players.
All local players from Junior and Senior Clubs are welcome to participate.

Nationally we need 600 people giving blood on a daily basis to keep up with the demand for blood and blood products.
Locally we require 200 people every week to meet our hospitals needs.  Blood only lasts 35 days, this is why we always need more people to become Blood Donors and donate regularly 3 to 4 times a year. 
Each time you donate blood, you can save 3 people. 

Blood and blood products are used for:
- Traumas and Accidents
- Burns
- Babies
