The Dragons have thrown their support behind struggling workers in the Illawarra area who have recently lost their jobs by offering 500 free reserved grandstand tickets to this Sunday's Telstra Premiership clash with the Panthers at WIN Stadium.
Dragons Chief Executive Officer Peter Doust said the Board made the decision after hearing of the plight of 280 locals who were retrenched from Port Kembla Copper yesterday.
“We'd like to lighten their load,' said Doust. “The Dragons and their supporters feel for the people caught in these crucial circumstances.
“We are offering these free tickets to the Port Kembla Copper workers who have been retrenched and also to any other locals who have lost their jobs in recent times.”
Any wishing to take up the ticket offer can collect the tickets from the i98FM Reception at WIN TV Studios, Television Avenue, Mount Saint Thomas, between 9am and 5pm tomorrow and Friday. You will need to provide proof of retrenchment.
