Club kicks in for Peter's Project

WARRNAMBOOL Football Club will make a significant donation to Peter’s Project with proceeds from its yearly membership drive.

Each year the club gives money to local charities and a portion of its 2014 membership fees will go towards a South West Radiotherapy Centre.

Club president Gary McLeod is hopeful a sum of about $16,000 will be raised.

“For the last eight or nine years we have donated to South West Healthcare, Brophy and Lyndoch,” he said.

“We knew Peter’s Project wanted to raise the $5 million over 12 months and every little bit counts.”

Mr McLeod said the club would give $10 from every $40 membership to the charity.

The club has sold 1600 memberships so far.

“It does add up to a lot of money,” he said.

“I know when we give it away the people are very appreciative.”

Mr McLeod said the club chose Peter’s Project this year as cancer has touched everyone in some way.

“I don’t think there’s any family that hasn’t been touched by it,” he said. “It’s the right thing to do.”

The final sum will be donated later in the year before the wrap up of Peter’s Project target $5 million campaign.

Memberships are still available from the club.
