Men of League metropolitan Welfare Officer and former Manly Sea Eagles player Norm Pounder alongside former Sea Eagles and North Sydney Bears front rower Bill “Herman” Hamilton visited Dubbo local, Bill Johnson, who is suffering from leukaemia.
Bill and his wife Faye have been travelling from Dubbo to Sydney to receive chemotherapy at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, since being diagnosed late last year.
Bill and Faye are members of the Dubbo Macquarie Club. They both volunteered for the club’s cafe van at their home ground matches in the past. Bill was also as a former manager and strapper for the Dubbo CYMS Club.
A mad Manly Sea Eagles fan, Bill was overwhelmed by the visit by two former Manly players as they shared alot of rugby league yarns during the visit.
Men of League were able to help the Johnson family through the Sporting Chance Fund with a $1000 petrol/food Essential Card to help Bill and Faye with their travelling expenses.
