Boot Out Breast Cancer Day

post

Belmont FC’s Boot Out Breast Cancer Day will be held on July the 27th.

We will proudly be pink for the day with the teams wearing their pre-purchased pink socks for the event as well as some additional items that have been purchased.

Don’t forget to purchase an entry guessing how many lollies are in the jar in our guessing competition in the weeks leading up to the event.

Our teams whether home or away will look outstanding donning the pink socks raising money for the local charity. Home teams will help the club be pinker which away teams carry the support and raise the awareness of the support Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation (HBCF) provide.

HBCF support local families going through treatment providing help via house cleaning, car trips to appointments, and lawn care among other things as well as providing comfort packs which are given out to every patient during treatment which include cushions, bags & drain bags too.

Boot Out Breast Cancer

Our pink sock fundraiser has had a change in direction but can still go ahead. Please read the notice from Judy Johnson below to find out more details.

To All Teams, Coaches and Managers,

I have been in contact with the McGrath Foundation this week and due to insufficient stock, they are now unable to supply us with the required number of socks for our Pull On Your Socks fundraiser. I am extremely disappointed by this as I was not made aware of the supply situation by the Foundation upon registration of our event. I only discovered it last week when I was placing our sock order and the situation was confirmed this afternoon. Sadly, The McGrath Foundation have offered no alternative for our event but I have an alternative, if you are still willing to participate.

Last year when I was going through treatment for breast cancer, the Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation (HBCF) were wonderfully supportive to, not only me, but my family as well. They are a local Foundation who support locals living with breast cancer and those going through treatment. They provide house cleaning, transportation, lawn maintenance, emotional support, care packs for relief during and after surgery and exercise and mindfulness classes. They can only offer this support through donations and fundraising money – they are not supported financially through any other means. The HBCF also run a pink socks campaign – BOOT OUT BREAST CANCER!

This is the link to the HBCF website –

https://hbcf.org.au/

The details that remain the same – their socks are still $12, caps are still $20, coolers still $10, Argyle socks still $12

The differences are – NO STRIPE SOCKS OR SPOTTY DESIGN SOCKS AVAILABLE
– The Argyle design is slightly different and there is a camouflage design to choose from as well

I will contact those teams that are affected by these differences – there are not very many. I will give refunds for the difference in price between sock design #2 and the HBCF pair – $3/pair – unless they are happy to give difference as a donation.

Due to this disappointing and unforseen situation with the McGrath Foundation, we will now host our BOOT OUT BREAST CANCER for the Hunter Breast cancer Foundation, on our alternative date JULY 27TH

If you have any concerns or DO NOT WISH TO PARTICIPATE, please do not hesitate to contact me either via email judy137@bigpond.com or via text message 0414011023. All updates will be on the Belmont FC website or the Facebook page.

On behalf of the POYS Committee, I apologise for this unforseen and disappointing circumstance, BUT we will have a wonderful day supporting a LOCAL foundation and looking fantastic in our pink socks!!

It’s Time to Pull on Your Socks

post

Belmont FC are participating in a Pull on Your Socks fundraiser this season and expect that (at least) every player will be wearing a pair of McGrath Foundation pink socks on the 29th June whether they are home or away for their game. We have already received approval from the association to do this for the day.

If your team hasn’t received order forms yet, then they can be collected by the Coach/Manager from the team pigeon hole at the clubhouse.

The printing of the forms wasn’t completed as soon as was hoped so the order placement date of 1st of June will be upon us really quickly so we ask that you move quickly to get your teams orders in to ensure that we are able to receive the socks in time for us to wear them on June the 29th. If you can’t get the orders to us by the 1st June which we still prefer, then an extension until the 6th June is allowable.

The orders forms are to be completed and handed to your team Manager who will in turn pass them onto the committee.

Cadbury Fundraiser

post

We’re about to kick off a fundraising drive to raise money for Belmont Football Club. It would be great if you could roll up your sleeves and help.

The good news is that this fundraiser is super simple… and delicious.

Cadbury Fundraiser: we’re selling Freddo and Caramelo Koala Funpack.

Every box of Freddo and Caramelo Koala Funpack we sell will raise $60. So we’re asking players and/or parents to sell at least one box for us. Feel free to grab another box if you’ve got lots of hungry buyers lined up!

Please collect your box of Freddo and Caramelo Koala Funpack on:

Date: 11th May 2019

At: Marks Oval Clubhouse

Tips for selling your treats

• Each item sells for $1

• Sell to family members, colleagues, friends or neighbours

• We don’t recommend that children sell the products – if they are involved, please ensure an adult is with them at all times

Pull On Your Socks

post

Belmont FC has decided this year to get behind the McGrath Foundation and raise money for those estimated 53 people diagnosed with breast cancer each day. We are fundraising for the McGrath Foundation to help place Breast Care Nurses across Australia.

More information will be provided in the coming weeks however for now, be prepared to buy yourself a pair of pink socks so all players and supporters can show our support.

If you would like to make an early contribution to our campaign and make a donation, please do so on our fundraiser page.

Cadbury Fundraiser Ending Round 12, 28th July 2018

post

The Belmont FC committee would like to thank everyone for their efforts who have participated in the Cadbury Chocolate Fundraiser. Funds raised will go towards new gear for the players and equipment for the clubhouse.

Final collection of money envelopes will be at the canteen during Round 12 on Saturday 28th July 2018. You can drop off your money on earlier gamedays if you like at the canteen.

Please make sure that your details are clearly filled out on the envelope so that we can tick you off the list. Each envelope returned gets a chance in the draw for the fantastic prize of a signed Jets jersey.

We still have boxes to sell which can be picked up from the canteen.

If you have been unable to sell all of your chocolates then please return the envelope with the money collected and hand the unsold chocolates in to the canteen at the same time.

Good Luck and thank you for helping out our wonderful club!!
