very special helper called Sarah. Sarah comes into the office every Wednesday for and hour to help out where needed. She is a valuable and much loved part of our team and always brings the office to life when she visits.
HELPING THE CARDROSS FOOTBALL NETBALL CLUB GET BACK ON THEIR FEET
Collie and Tierney staff member Amie Tiller has been heavily involved in helping to raise much needed funds
to assist the Cardross Football/Netball Club to get back on its feet after devastating floods struck the Community in February 2011 which left them with no clubrooms or sporting grounds. As a Committee Member and netball player for the Cardross Football/Netball Club Amie has helped to organise several fundraising events including a Karaoke night where an auction of goods donated by local businesses raised around $5,000 for the football/netball club and also the Cardross Cricket Club who also lost everything in the floods. All the money raised from the fundraising events go toward helping to re-build the clubs clubrooms, sporting ground and replace equipment lost in the floods.
The Cardross Football/Netball Club and Cricket Club are the heart of the small Community of Cardross and it has been a tough 2 years for both clubs to survive financially and also to be able to compete in the football/netball and cricket seasons so to finally be back on their home turf in 2013 will be a boost for the community, members and players for both clubs.
HELPING THE MERBEIN FOOTBALL CLUB GET BACK IN THE BLACK
After 45 years of involvement both as a player and member of the Mildura South Football Club and his previous experience helping to re-build his own club, by building and selling three houses, when Lyle heard about the struggle of one of the opposition teams in the Sunraysia Football League “The Merbein Magpies” he decided
he would help out. Together with club officials, sub contractors and a host of volunteers a luxurious three bedroom home was built at 14 Nicholas Avenue, Mildura. Lyle then put his real estate skills to the front organising an Auction campaign. Although the property was passed in on the auction day with was sold only a few weeks later. Through his efforts Lyle was able to help out a struggling club, which has a long and colourful history in the Sunraysia Football League with a substantial amount from the auction ensuring their future in the league.
