Local Sporting Group Shows Sharing Is Caring

Media Releases

State Member for Wallsend, Ms Sonia Hornery MP, has joined forces with a local sporting group, the Newcastle Hunters, to help anyone in the local community who needs a helping hand.

The Newcastle Hunters contacted Ms Hornery last week to discuss how they could help the local community. The team decided to put together 50 grocery kits, with staples that can be distributed throughout the community.

The Newcastle Hunters were particularly looking to help sections of the community that have fallen through the cracks with all of the assistance packages being announced, and particularly showed concern for students at Newcastle University.

The group has joined forces with Ms Hornery who will help distribute the packs to those in the community who need them.

Quotes attributable to State Member for Wallsend, Sonia Hornery MP

“This is just another example of the community in the Wallsend electorate who go above and beyond when the chips are down.”

“Here we have a small sporting group who have dug deep to give back to the community.”

“They have purchased 50 grocery kits, each containing the essentials and want to get them out to locals who are in need of a helping hand.”

“They have been working closely with the students at Newcastle University and have made sure they are all ok and have been looked after and now want to make sure the rest of the community have what they need.”

“My office will help co-ordinate the people in most need and arrange for the care packages to be delivered.”

“Sharing is caring and the Newcastle Hunters deserve a huge thanks for the very kind gesture they have made.”
