Les Twentyman Foundation
The Williamstown Football Club are continued supporters of the Les Twentyman Foundation, who provide fantastic support for 'at-risk' youth in the western suburbs of Melbourne. We have supported them with many fundraising initiatives including barbecues, match day events, player driven auctions, sportspersons lunches and general donations in the way of financial and clothing. This has helped fund an extra youth support worker in the western suburbs for the Foundation.
The Club has been a big supporter of White Ribbon, helping bring light to the serious issue of male domestic violence against women. The club has raised awareness for White Ribbon by promoting the charity's initiatives both at match day events as well as online via the club's website and social media platforms, including the video below featuring all players taking the oath against domestic violence.
Helping Hand Cafe
The Seagulls donated and helped raise funds for the Helping Hand Cafe, a local volunteer-run charity who assists vulnerable members of the community doing it tough. Along with Williamstown MP and #1 Seagulls ticket holder, Wade Noonan, players, coaches and staff took part in a charity soccer match against students from Bayside College in Altona North to help the charity organisation in their busiest period just before Christmas.
Western Chances do great work within the western suburbs of Melbourne for underprivileged youth who need support, whether it be financial or moral, to reach their dreams. The Williamstown Football Club promoted Western Chances as a match day charity partner during 2016, giving Founding Chair Terry Bracks an opportunity to speak and further promote the Foundation's amazing work.
The Williamstown Football Club runs football clinics and school visits to David House, who provide individualised support for people with a disability.
