Big thanks to the Northern Stingers QPSRLA for raising $3200 in support of Bowel Cancer Australia through a Sports Memorabilia Charity Auction to help others!
The Northern Stingers Queensland Police Service Rugby League Association (QPSRLA) Team has a proud tradition of annually supporting various charities for the past decade.
The Northern Stingers consist of QPS Employees (both Officers and Unsworn Members) spread between the District boundaries covering north of Ingham, South of the Burdekin and West well past Charters Towers. Over the past decade, the Northern Stingers have raised well over $30,000 for their adopted charities, while competing in annual charity football matches and the QPSRLA State Championships.
In 2016, the Northern Stingers QPSRLA Team adopted Bowel Cancer Australia as their charity. “This choice was inspired by team member Senior Constable Danny Cahill’s diagnosis with bowel cancer. We have provided support to Danny as he has managed to get through the initial treatment of bowel cancer and continue recovery.
Danny nominated Bowel Cancer Australia as a charity for support because they supported him so well with his cancer battle.
The Northern Stingers QPSRLA Team proudly went into battle wearing the Bowel Cancer Australia logo on their Team Jerseys and polos at the 2016 QPSRLA State Championships, to be crowned as Plate Champions in Cairns May, 2016.,” said Shaun Byrnes.
