The Camden Haven community is invited to attend the Andrew Howe Charity Day on Saturday, June 29 at the Kendall Showground.

Andrew passed away suddenly in February. He was an active Camden Haven community member, who loved his sport.

The June 29 event will feature a full day of games, hosted by the Kendall Blues Rugby League Football Club.

Juniors will kick off the day from 8.30am.

Eight Camden Haven Eagles junior teams will participate in the event. Andrew was an Eagles player as a junior.

A spokesperson from the Camden Haven Eagles said the club encourages the community to get behind a great day of footy for a good cause.

The Hastings League matches will start from 12.30pm, where the female players of the Kendall Blues are set to take on Beechwood.

The Laurieton Stingrays will play the Comboyne Tigers at 1.30pm. The main game is at 2pm where the Kendall Blues will come face to face with the Long Flat Dragons.

Teams from across the Camden Haven and Port Macquarie-Hastings will feature on the day.

After the games there will be live music and a charity auction at the Kendall Services and Citizens Club from 6pm.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet former NRL stars. There will be raffles and prizes throughout the day.

A spokesperson from the club said current NRL referee Grant Atkins will be controlling the main game at the Charity Day in the Hastings League.

Grant recently refereed the Ladies State Of Origin and was reserve referee for the men's State Of Origin.

Grant has refereed over 150 NRL games, as well as officiating at the last two Rugby League World Cups.

"We are absolutely thrilled that Grant has generously offered his time to our charity, travelling from Perth via Adelaide and Sydney just to volunteer for us," a spokesperson from the Kendall Blues said.

"We look forward to meeting Grant on Saturday at the showground."
