Dear NLFC players, family and friends,
We are looking forward to the trial gala days this Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th April against Cooks Hill FC. As per tradition, this event is an opportunity to raise money for a charity.
This Year’s Charity is:
John Hunter Children’s Hospital Cystic Fibrosis Unit
In Australia, one in 2,500 babies are born with Cystic Fibrosis, that’s one every four days. Cystic Fibrosis (CF) primarily affects the lungs and digestive system and there is currently no cure. From birth, a person with CF undergoes constant medical treatments and physiotherapy.
At John Hunter Children’s Hospital a regular outpatient clinic is provided for patients with cystic fibrosis. The clinic is multidisciplinary and incorporates respiratory specialists, clinical nurse consultants, physiotherapists and dietitians. Home based services are also provided.
How do I Donate?
We are asking for a gold coin donation from all players on the day for this worthy cause. If you would like to donate more please feel free!
Please pass all donations to your team coach/manager this weekend at the Trial match.
Team managers/coaches – please collect the money from your players and hand to the volunteers at the grounds with the collection buckets.
On the day there will also be collection buckets set up at the canteen and BBQs at each of the grounds.
We thank you in advance for your generosity, and wish you the best for the 2019 season!
