On Saturday June 10, there will be a Beacon Hill fundraiser for Bear Cottage, a children’s hospice that specialises in paediatric palliative care. Bear Cottage’s aim is to provide children undergoing treatment with an environment as far removed from a hospital as possible.
Beacon Hill FC are raising money in support of Archie, one of their under-6 players. Archie uses a wheelchair and, with the cooperation of both Beacon Hill FC and Manly Warringah Football Association, has been registered so that he can be in a team with his friends.
Funds raised on Saturday from the canteens at Beacon Hill Reserve and Tristram Road Reserve will be donated to Bear Cottage. In addition, donation buckets will be present, and Beacon Hill FC senior teams will donate an amount of money for each goal they score on the day.
The club will also match the amount of donations supplied by their members, players and spectators, in further support of this wonderful cause.
Please help the Beacon Hill fundraiser by visiting either Beacon Hill Reserve or Tristram Road Reserve on Saturday, and donate whatever you can spare – every amount, no matter how small, will be of great assistance to Bear Cottage. At Beacon Hill, the earliest games start at 8:30am and the final game kicks off at 3pm, while at Tristram Road the earliest games begin at 8:30am and the latest games start at 11:30am.
