THE Australian Defence Force are showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to helping rebuild our community, and tonight they are set to face a new challenge.

In a bid to uplift the community spirit as we rebuild the region, the soldiers are set to take on local rugby team, Frenchville Pioneers, in a charity Rugby match.

All money raised will go towards the 'Fill a Fridge' campaign which was launched by Rockhampton Region Mayor with the Salvation Army last week.

Cold beverages will be available and a Queensland Reds Jersey will be raffled off.

Frenchville Pioneers VS the Australian Defence Force
When: Tonight, Friday 6.30pm
Where: Rugby Park, Normanby Street, South Rockhampton
