Fairytale finish to Jimboomba Redbacks Bowel Cancer Australia fundraiser

ALMOST $6000 was raised to support Bowel Cancer Australia after a Jimboomba Redbacks charity fundraiser on Saturday.

Juniors made the most of the morning from 10am as the ROYS (aged five to seven) played a display game.

This was followed by under eights, nines and 10s mixed games.

There were plenty of kid friendly activities including a jumping castle, face painting, a specialist balloonist and giveaways from Riverton developers, AV Jennings.

The club rallied behind nine-year-old Tate Farrow who cut his long hair to be donated to Variety Children’s Charity as a wig for young cancer patients.

The Jimboomba Redbacks seniors took to the field in the afternoon to clash against Maroochydore.

The Redbacks won with an overwhelming 45 point win (74-29) boosting the team to equal second place on the ladder.

The Jimboomba Masters remained undefeated, defeating a combined team including players from Greater Springfield, Fassifern, Aspley and Toowoomba.

Masters captain and club secretary Clint White kicked the final goal to the delight of his brother Trinity, who watched from the sidelines and is battling cancer.

The event finished with live entertainment and a fireworks display.

The Jimboomba Redbacks raised $5773 for Bowel Cancer Australia.

Treasurer Simone Lucas said the club appreciated community support.

“The Jimboomba Redbacks would like to thank all our members, supporters and visitors for your held and support in making this day a success,” she said.

“A special thank you goes to our major sponsor for the day, Vv Jennings and minor sponsor Rooksy’s fine finishes along with all the donations towards out raffle prizes from our local community and the food trucks who provided their services and also gave donations to Bowel Cancer Australia.”
