Seagulls raise $5k for Ladder Foundation
Williamstown Football Club have had great pleasure in presenting the Ladder Foundation with a cheque for $5,000 on Tuesday 1st September.
The $5,000 was raised through an initiative by the club’s first year players from the Liam Picken Academy. Players conducted fundraising activities at the club’s Round 12 home game against Essendon via tin rattles, auctions and a raffle.
Members of the Liam Picken include: Alex Carr, Billy Myers, Ash Di Ciero, Jacob Chisari, Caleb Hislop, Jake Maher, Caleb Sullivan, Liam McMahon, Tom Johnstone, Tristan Davies, Anthony Giuliano, Ash Heaver and Damian Di Donato.
In addition to these fundraising efforts, Seagulls defender Jack Charleston has also created a fundraising project for the Ladder Foundation.
As part of this project, for just $7 people can take part in a challenge that requires them to go without items such as hot food, hot water, socks and more on different days, to help develop a deeper understanding of the struggles that homeless youth face.
