ARARAT - The annual Legends football game held between past players of the Tatyoon and Moyston/Willaura Football Clubs boosted funds for the East Grampians Health Service Auxiliary.
A total of $1000 raised was put towards the Auxiliary's Women, Wisdom and Wellbeing dinner.
Each player paid $10 to play in the legends game. A Richmond Football Club jumper was donated by Richmond footballer David Astbury, who started his career at Tatyoon and is the grandson of Auxiliary member, Leonie King. Scott Astbury, uncle of David sold tickets around the town which was great effort.
Peter Wigg, an explosive rover of yesteryear and governor of the day said the players thought this year's fundraising efforts could go towards the East Grampians Health Service Auxiliary Women Wisdom and Wellbeing dinner.
"This is the third year of the Legend's Football Game and we hope to continue running it every year to help raise money for local community groups," he said.
EGHS Auxiliary president, Margie Kilpatrick thanked the clubs for the donation.
"The Auxiliary is appreciative of this generous donation given by the two local football clubs and this will help in our fundraising efforts to raise money this year for new emergency trolleys in the Urgent Care Centre of the local Health Service," she said.
