Brisbane Roar did their bit for charity last week with club chairman Chris Bombolas teaming up with Roary to raise over $1000 for Surf Life Saving Queensland at an event in Queen Street Mall.

Bombolas went “up the tower” and got on the phone to rally support for the organisation, racking up over a grand in just half an hour.

Roary was also at the event, putting his attention-seeking skills to good effect and adding some colour to the occasion.

The event was part of a busy week for the cheeky Roar mascot, who attended local football presentation events on Wednesday and Thursday night.

On Wednesday night Roary joined defender Matt Mundy at the Football Brisbane representative players- awards night, handing out tickets to games while Mundy presented players with their awards.

On Thursday, the loveable lion teamed up with Andrew Packer to present awards at the Westminster FC awards function.

On Friday, the Brisbane Roar development team visited Woodridge State School with 96.5FM.

Students got stuck into fun skills sessions with the development coaches and played FIFA 09 games on Sony Playstation.
