Footy and fun for a great cause

I have never played Australian Rules football and have never really aspired to pull on footy boots. But when the opportunity presented itself to play in the first Reclink Community Cup charity Aussie Rules match to be held in Brisbane, I jumped – not quite as high as a tall AFL ruckman, but a jump nonetheless– at the chance to participate. Reclink is a fantastic charity that helps people who are experiencing disadvantage to get back into the community via arts and sports programs. One such program in Melbourne has seen people recovering from drug and alcohol addiction play successfully together in an Aussie Rules team in competition games. When local musicians, media and even Federal Senators play the charity footy game at the Pine Rivers Showground at Lawnton on 25 September, all the bump sand bruises received, all marks taken and goals kicked will be in support of Reclink. Come along, enjoy some great live music(and not as good footy skills) and support a top cause. And don’t forget to cheer for my Brisbane Lines team. We will be the team wearing white and red guernseys.
