After the 2009 Bushfires I saw first hand how a sporting team could unite a community. The local footy ground in Whittlesea was the staging area for the community evacuations during the fires. I was proud to be asked to become the #1 ticket holder for the Whittlesea Eagles – a great honour from a remarkable community.
In 2012 I was invited to become the #1 ticket holder for the AFL’s youngest team, the GWS Giants. Kevin Sheedy and the team – both on and off the field – welcomed me into their football family and I’m very proud to support this team as it works to grow the game in NSW and pursue that elusive inaugural Premiership.
