Rosies- friends on the street was Broncos charity partner at the last NRL round as part of the Catholic charity’s 30th birthday. A regiment of Rosies volunteers from all over South East Queensland took over Suncorp Stadium on March 24 for the game against the Raiders.
Meanwhile a couple of Broncos players, Tevita Pangai and Gehamat Shibasaki, joined the charity on outreach in Brisbane city.
“It was great to get in there and see what a shift involves for the Rosies volunteers,” said Pangai.
“It’s much more than just offering drinks and snacks. It’s also about friendship and being there for people to chat to.”
Pangai and Gehamat embraced the complete volunteer experience from prebrief to debrief. They helped cleaned and restocked the van after taking part to the outreach.
“The players were willing to help every step of the way and interacted with our patrons effortlessly when we pulled up in the city,” said Sarah Corbett Brisbane Branch Co-ordinator.
“It was really rewarding to see the faces of some of our patrons when they spotted the players operating the coffee and tea machine.”
