BRFC supporting Charity Champions

Have you seen one of our players out & about in the community in the last few weeks?

Both our Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League sides have been busy both on & off the pitch. Keep an eye out for us about in the coming weeks!

Here’s what we’ve been up to lately.

This month, we were proud to support the first Australian Indigenous Football Championships, hosted on the Football Brisbane fields at Logan Metro Sports Park.

More than 60 indigenous communities were represented among 26 teams throughout the week-long carnival, which was also supported by Football Brisbane and Football Queensland.

Our players had the chance to check out the action throughout the week and we treated to some entertaining action from footballer who had journeyed from across Australia to Logan.

Last month, BRFC selected five organisations to become our inaugural Charity Champions - organisations who do tremendous work in the community and whose values align with the Club’s.

Our players have been getting involved and helping out a number of these organisations.

Earlier this week, three of our Hyundai A-League stars headed along to the Queensland’s Children’s Hospital to put smiles on some dials with the Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Jacob Pepper, Daniel Bowles and fan-favourite Henrique brightened the days of a number of sick kids, taking the time to take photos and make it a special day.

Westfield W-League star Hayley Raso also got involved in helping out the Foundation, joining the Celebrity panel at last Saturday night’s Channel Nine Telethon.

Hayley was manning the phones & taking your calls as the Telethon raised more than $12.5 million dollars!

This week, as we prepare to celebrate rebel Female Football Round and the incredible impact women make on the World Game, in collaboration with Charity Champion Multicultural Development Australia (MDA), we also invited a number of women from a wide range of backgrounds along to watch our Roar Women in training.

MDA is committed to delivery a welcome Queensland where people of all backgrounds have the opportunity to fully contribute and participate in a multicultural society.

This rebel Female Football Round, we will also be supporting Charity Champion Share the Dignity and its #ItsInTheBag Campaign.

It’s simple. First of all, choose a handbag in good condition that you no longer use.  Then, fill it with items that would make a woman feel special, pop in a thoughtful note or Christmas card and show her someone cares. Bring it along to Suncorp Stadium this Saturday and drop it at the marquee on the North Plaza.

Two of our Hyundai A-League squad’s younger players, as well as Managing Director David Pourre, joined the droves of partying school-leavers on the Gold Coast this week, to help Charity Champion Red Frogs.

The organisation, who has become well known for their work at the annual Schoolies week, this week hosted David, Shannon Brady and Nick D’Agostino, who helped in ensuring everyone was having a good time - even testing out their skills in the kitchen for some hungry kids.
