Sunday 15th May – Bunnings BBQ

Again another great effort by the team at the very busy Bunnings BBQ. Thanks needs to go to Mick and Jacinta Raimondo for organising and for all the great helpers that attended on the day.

Sunday 17th April – Belmont Market stalls

Thank you for the fabulous support of donations and assistance with the market stall on Sunday. We had lots to sell which was fabulous. It was fantastic to see so many boys down there and the buyers were happy to buy knowing it was for a good cause and that they could see the boys who were going on the trip.

A very special thanks to Loretta and Mark Rimmer for organising the event and to Matt Williams who got the van and delivered the goods to the market bright early 5.30am!!!!! To Mandy Williams and Sue Welsh who were great at merchandising, sorting and making the stall look good and who were there in the very early hours of Sunday morning till the very end!! To all the parents and boys who came and offered support selling and packing up a very big thank you we couldn’t have done it without you.

We are very happy with what we raised which was $1,126.30! Great effort everyone well done.

Saturday 26 March – Faggs Mitre 10 BBQ

A huge thanks to the Raimondo family for again holding the fort at the Fagg’s Mitre 10 BBQ and on Easter Saturday.

A family affair !

Geelong Harness Racing – Saturday 27th February

Thanks to Matt and Marty for emceeing the night and looking after the punters club and Amanda for her organization of the night. It was a fun night and we thank to all the race sponsors on the night.

Geelong IRONMAN – Sunday 7th February

A huge thank you to all for a great job with the Geelong Iron Man event. All up we had 57 volunteers taking part on the day. Hopefully our course marshals got to see some inspiring athletes and possibly the chance to rest and soak up some sun at times.

The boys in the aid station certainly got a run for their money!! It was a huge job to provide fluids and food to all of the athletes, let alone the arduous job of collecting literally tonnes of disposed bidons and rubbish along the road.

All of the nagging paid off, as the event organiser came by at the end of our shift to report that the pro’s had commented what a great job we did , so well done everyone.


Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race  – Geelong 30/31st January 2016

The event ran over two days – Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st January and we had a fantastic 43 people who gave up their time to volunteer. For some it was great to be able to marshall down the end of their street and others who went further afield. Again a big thanks to all involved.


We have been able to man the Faggs Mitre 10 BBQ stall twice and we thank those who participated in this fundraising activity.

Family Lawn Bowls Day at Bareena

This was a great family day and it was fantastic to enjoy the event with the others from the club. The “Star” had to be Ben McC with the entertainment on the day !!  Thanks to all who helped with the lead up and on the day as well. Most importantly this was a fun club day and we raised some much needs funds as well.
