The LGIAsuper Community Hub returns to 1300SMILES Stadium on Friday night for the Round 12 clash between the Cowboys and Storm.

Located in the Western forecourt, the LGIAsuper Community Hub hosts organisations throughout the season.

This Friday Wilmar Sugar will be in the Hub and have plenty of fun planned for families before kick-off.

Wilmar Sugar Community Relations Manager Kylie Newman said that they will be sending an important message on the night – how to stay safe around cane trains.

"Children will have the opportunity to learn where cane trains fit in the sugarcane crushing process and what they should do to stay safe around cane trains," she said.

As the 2018 crushing season begins early next month Wilmar Sugar aims to make people of all ages aware that cane trains will be on the move across the milling regions again soon.

"Of course, we'll also have our cane train safety mascot, Sam, there. We'll have a number of cane railway tracks set up around the stadium and people will need to give way whenever Sam is crossing the tracks in front of them," Ms Newman said.

Wilmar Sugar sponsor a wide range of community programs and are a community partner of the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys.

Wilmar Sugar owns and operates eight sugar mills in North and Central Queensland. Together they manufacture more than half of Australia's raw sugar, crushing about 15 million tonnes of cane annually to produce more than two million tonnes of raw sugar. Their mills operate each year during the crushing season, which typically runs from June to November. There's more to Wilmar than the sugar they produce however, and they're incredibly proud of the contribution they make to the people and land that supply their business.
