Sports Gala for Flood Appeal [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 8 July 1950

Sports Gala for Flood Appeal | Sir. — As tho people of North j ern N.S.W.' and the other flood areas are in need of financial assistance, why not let us have a combined effort on the part of tho footballers of this dis- j trict? I suggest that as soon as pos sible, all four * codes — Austra lian Rules, Rugby Union,- Rugby League and . Soccer — get to- : gether and stage a . combined all-day carnival,- the entire pro ceeds' to go to the Woilongong Flood Appeal. This would not only greatly help the distressed people up North; it would also allow foot ball followers to see' all codes on the one day. If such a fixture were arrang ed I am sure a crowd of 8,000 to 10,000 would roll along to the Woilongong. Showground. C. KEMP, Publicity Officer, Illawarra Australian Rules Club.
