How Sydney 7s will be used to generate funds for bush-fire relief

Each try scored by Australia’s 7s teams during the Sydney 7s will see $500 (Ksh.s 50477) donated to  Australia’s bushfire relief appeal.
Rugby Australia CEO Raelene Castle announced on Saturday the 2020 Sydney and Super Rugby will be used to raise funds for the relief.
“Our annual HSBC Sydney 7s tournament is being played on the first weekend in February at Bankwest Stadium, and today we are launching a series of fundraising initiatives by pledging $500 for each try scored by our men’s and women’s teams at the tournament for the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Appeal,” Raelene Castle Rugby AU.
“We are also working with our counterparts both here in Australia and internationally to establish other fundraising opportunities with the Super Rugby season set to kick off at the end of this month”
“It is in difficult times like this that rugby’s global community can use its enormous strength and reach to help make a difference for people in need. We are looking at any means possible that we can lend some support to those communities who need it most.”
Wallabies winger Reece Hodge has already joined a number of high-profile athletes in trying to raise money for the bushfire relief effort.
Hodge is running a lucky draw competition for his followers with every $50 donation to the bushfire appeal putting people in with a chance to win a signed 2019 Rugby World Cup jersey and pair of match-worn boots.
