THE Warwick and District and Border Rugby League RizeUp round was a big success.

Last week, the local community was asked to donate laundry and kitchen items to local rugby league clubs which will be donated to the RizeUp charity.

RizeUp provides real practical assistance to victims of domestic violence by helping to furnish and fill a home with basic essential items that families normally needed when moving into a bare home.

Local junior and senior clubs have shown their support for the charity that is committed to breaking the cycle of domestic violence.

Queensland Rugby League operations manager Michael Jensen, who helped co-ordinate the round, said he didn't expect the response to be as "huge” as it was.

Jensen said it was important to make people aware of domestic violence.

"We had a massive response and we really appreciate it,” Jensen said.

He said the Stanthorpe junior and senior rugby league club donated a heap of items.

"Domestic violence is fairly common in today's society, unfortunately, and we want to help provide support to the victims,” he said.

He said it was a pleasing and outstanding effort by the community.

"It was a tremendous effort by all clubs in the Warwick and District and Border Rugby League region,” he said.
