Men of League Foundation Heroes and Legends Rugby League Museum volunteers enjoy a Christmas lunch
For the last five years, a number of Men of League Foundation members have acted as volunteers at The Heroes and Legends Rugby League Museum at Sydney Football Stadium in Moore Park during the week.
They act as guides to assist local, interstate and overseas visitors in their visits to the Museum and assist in cataloguing the many exhibits held in storage.
Recently, the Museum’s Historian, Terry Williams, hosted nine volunteers at a Christmas BBQ on the rooftop at NRL Central and everyone had a marvellous time. As a historian of rugby league, there is no one better than Terry and all volunteers enjoy their time working for him and, of course, talking about rugby league.
The current Museum displays include a pictorial history of the game, several hi-tech interactive displays with players statistics, video footage of the game’s most memorable advertising campaigns, highlights of great clashes, Rugby League’s 100 Greatest Players, a cap worn by the great Daily Messenger, a collection of every major trophy as well as original jerseys worn by the late Clive Churchill and Arthur Beetson.
If you have never been there, do yourselves a big favour and go.
