The Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs lost to the New Zealand Warriors in the title match in The Jenny Souris Foundation NRL Round on Friday, May 12 at Accor Stadium in Sydney.

The aim of the match was to raise awareness about the work the foundation is doing in the field of breast cancer support, and generate funds to continue it’s work.

On the day, a $10,000 check from Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and Canterbury Leagues Club was presented to The Jenny Souris Foundation.

“We are very proud to continue to do this work through the foundation with the support of M&J Chickens and the Bulldogs,” Maria added.
