The Tooheys New Crew is calling for locals over the age of 18 to come down to the Piggabeen Sports complex on August 9-10 to help finish the renovations in time for the benefit match for the Tweed Hospital Children's Ward, between the Tweed Heads Seagulls and Norths Devils.


After their chances of playing Queenslands Intrust Super Cup was put at risk because of their poor clubhouse facilities, the Tweed Heads Seagulls called on the Tooheys New Crew to build their organisation a good quality clubhouse and provide all members of the local community with a modern function venue to use.


The extensive project will see a new clubhouse built from scratch. It will feature a new function room, storage area, modern canteen and an undercover area to ensure year-round spectator viewing.


Paul 'The Chief' Harragon says the Tweed Heads Seagulls RLFC won't be the only ones to gain from the build.





"The Tooheys New Crew is all about benefiting the entire community and the new facility will also be used by local softball, touch footy and athletic clubs in the area and provide a great function facility for all locals to enjoy."


Club CEO Terry Keen says he's looking forward to seeing the finished product.


"It's taken more than a year to secure funding and great appreciation must go to the Tooheys New Crew, Tweed Shire Council, NSW State Government Community Building Program and the NRL," Keen said.


"To have the Tooheys New Crew come onboard to manage the build has been an incredible help and our club would be in a bad way if it weren't for their support.


Origin legend Bryan Fletcher will be hitting the tools with the Tooheys New Crew on the Friday (August 9) to assist with renovations. The Chief and Tooheys New Crew will also shout a few refreshments at local pubs that night.


Locals are also encouraged to join 'The Chief' and Tooheys New Crew on Sunday, August 11 when they officially hand back the completed renovation to the community.


The official handover ceremony will be held at the clubhouse before the televised match between the Tweed Heads Seagulls and Norths Devils.
