Club scores record raf­fle sales

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport -

SOUTH Perth Ju­nior Cricket Club broke a record by rack­ing up 600 sales for the Good for Cricket Raf­fle this year.

All pro­ceeds from the raf­fle were given back to the rapidly grow­ing club. The num­ber of ju­nior crick­eters at the club rose from 550 last year to 670.

“We are hop­ing the money raised from this year’s raf­fle tick­ets will go to­wards the pur­chase of new kit bags,” un­der-13s coach Ash Koli said.

“With the new ju­niors com­ing on board we need more wick­ets, bats, pads, hel­mets, gloves and train­ing balls so all ticket sales are go­ing to help.”

Toy­ota WA and the WACA started the raf­fle last year to sup­port WA cricket at a grass roots level.

The money raised goes back to lo­cal clubs, but a lucky per­son with the win­ning ticket will drive away with a new Toy­ota Camry.

Toy­ota WA re­gional man­ager Terry Wood said it was im­por­tant to sup­port and nur­ture the de­vel­op­ment of fu­ture ath­letes.

The South Perth Ju­nior Cricket Club un­der-13s team puts City Toy­ota dealer prin­ci­pal Wayne Smith through his paces.
