Caspers kick a goal for charity

Adam Brennan and Michael Jackson auctioning jerseys
12th Apr 2023

Soccer players from across the generations came together in Guyra last weekend for some friendly rivalry and to support a good cause.
Past, present and future players competed against each other all in the name of kicking cancer. There were also plenty of spectators who turned up to watch some fun soccer matches, all while raising money for the Can Assist Guyra branch.
Organiser of the day Casey Lennon said that the weather was fantastic and the day was a great success both on and off the field.
“The auction saw some unreal bidding and community members dug deep to support this fantastic charity,” Casey said.
“I cannot begin to thank everyone enough for their support and help getting this fundraiser up and going.
“I would like to thank the Can Assist Guyra branch members for their support and all of their help selling raffle tickets and being a part of the day and also a big thankyou to everything Can Assist Guyra do to support those in need in our community.
“I would also like to say a big thankyou to the Guyra Soccer Club for all of their support and help to make this day possible, we are so lucky to have such a great soccer club that is so supportive.
“Thanks to everyone who helped in the preparation and on the day with cooking the BBQ, selling raffle tickets and collecting donations and playing in the games. A big thankyou to all the business that donated prizes for the raffle and auction and also the jersey sponsors, it was greatly appreciated.”
Businesses that made donations of prizes were Intersport, Crop Hair Design, Brisk Trading, Khammo, Guyra Cafe, JoJos, Dasha’s Hardware, Kirks IGA, Dan & Kirra Lennon, Guyra Fuels and Brisbane Roar.
