AVJennings Riverton supports the local Jimboomba community.
It’s not ‘football’ and it’s not ‘finals’, it’s ‘family’.
Jimboomba Redbacks AFL Club raised almost $6,000 on Saturday 7th July 2018 to support Bowel Cancer Australia. With plenty of kid’s activities ranging from face painting to the Gold Coast Suns jumping castles, food trucks, a balloon artist, followed by a 7pm fireworks display, the Redbacks sure put on a great community day.
The under 6’s and under 8’s played it out early in the morning with the support of their families, while the under 9’s and 10’s kicked off at 11am with a few good tackles.
AVJennings State General Manager, Barry Young, thanked the Redbacks for putting on a lively family day and showcasing Jimboomba’s community spirit.
“It’s been a pleasure to work with the Jimboomba Redbacks and we are pleased to be creating a community across the road from such a supportive family club”.
AVJennings Riverton project donated a sum of $7,000 to the Redbacks to support their growing club, with $1,500 donated to Bowel Cancer Australia.
There were plenty of pooches wondering around with this beautiful husky “Storm” supporting the Redbacks Masters team win against the mixed opposition team with players from Springfield, Aspley and Toowoomba.
Young 18-month-old Ava-Grace enjoyed the fresh country air and family day out with plenty of giggles and running around.
9 year old Tate Farrow supported the Cancer Fundriaser day by presenting enornous courage and donating his 3 year long grown hair to the Variety Children’s Charity. Tates hair will be formed into a wig for cancer patients after raising over $600 on his own.
The Redbacks Club Secretary, Clinton White, kicked the final goal for the day and showed the clubs support for the partnership with AVJennings Riverton.
“We would also like to thank you guys at AVJennings Riverton for the generous donations and the overwhelming support... We were extremely happy with the turn out and have had so much positive feedback about the club moving forward”.
The Redbacks Seniors team have kindly signed an exclusive Redbacks Cancer Day Jersey, as worn by the Seniors and Master’s teams on Saturday. The signed jersey will be showcased at the Riverton Sales & Information Centre for new families to see as Riverton continues to grow within the humble Jimboomba community.
