Donor Mate at footy

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

DONOR Mate will host a fam­ily fun day at the Carlisle Cougars Foot­ball Club on Au­gust 6 to pro­mote or­gan do­na­tion dur­ing Donatelife Week.

Colts, re­serves and league games will wear the Donor Mate colours and fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties will in­clude a bouncy cas­tle, food vans, face paint­ing, In­staprinter and a Snapchat com­pe­ti­tion.

The fun will start at 10.30am and con­tinue un­til 5pm.

The Cougars will play the Ocean Ridge Ea­gles at Carlisle Re­serve, cor­ner of Or­rong Road and Cohn Street.

Colts play at 10.40pm, re­serves kick off at 12.30pm and league at 2.30pm.

Donor Mate fi­nance di­rec­tor Troy Scudds said young men were less likely to be listed as or­gan donors, so it was a de­mo­graphic the group hoped to tar­get this year.

He said 1500 Aus­tralians were in need of do­nated or­gans.
