On Saturday 15 July, the St Augustine’s Ladies Day will be held at Cromer Park. The day is held in parallel to the celebration of Helen Anglicas, who sadly lost her fight against breast cancer in 2016. All money raised on the day will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, who fund leading edge breast cancer research.
Many St Augustine’s teams from multiple age groups will play across Fields 2, 3 & 4 at Cromer Park, ensuring a great atmosphere as the club plays tribute to Helen. This event will run from 8:30am until 5:30pm, and in addition to the games there will be plenty for spectators to enjoy, with raffles and other competitions being run throughout the day.
Spectators are encouraged to wear pink and invite significant women in their life as the club seeks to celebrate the role women play in all aspects of our lives. At 3:00pm the Helen Anglicas Memorial Cup will be played on Cromer Park Field 2 between St Augustine’s and Brookvale, two clubs that Helen had a great impact on and that remember her fondly.
The sad truth is that eight Australian women lose their life to breast cancer every day. The National Breast Cancer Foundation is working to change this and has set a goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. To help them, St Augustine’s have set a fundraising goal of $20,000 for this year’s Ladies Day.
