The St George Illawarra Dragons have proudly supported a special musical busking initiative taking place across train stations throughout the Wollongong metro area on Monday.
The initiative will see music students from a number of local schools play at their local Wollongong metro train stations to raise awareness and funds for the Southern Youth Family Services.
The initiative was created by local Smiths Hill High School captain Chris Lavilles who himself has been busking with his family to raise donations for SYFS in previous years.
Dragons duo Joel Thompson and Dunamis Lui as well as Ambassador Dan Hunt met with the students ahead of the event and given them their support.
“It’s a great initiative what these students are doing to raise awareness of youth homelessness,” said Thompson.
“Southern Youth Services do a great job spreading some love in this area and will be working hard to make sure everyone enjoys this time of the year irrespective their circumstances.
“Youth homelessness is a big issue that we have in Australia and it’s good to see that these guys are playing their part.
“I encourage everyone to stake ten seconds out of their schedule to listen to them play and donate kindly as its for a good cause.”
