In-House part­ner­ship WAFL first

DEMONS TO HELP SICK COUN­TRY KIDS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

PERTH Foot­ball Club has be­come the first WAFL club to part­ner with Ron­ald Mc­Don­ald House (RMH) and is ex­cited about work­ing to­gether to pro­vide a home away from home for re­gional WA fam­i­lies who have a sick child re­ceiv­ing hospi­tal treat­ment in Perth.

The Demons have a large coun­try district, from Won­gan Hills in the east to Don­gara in the north.

So it was a nat­u­ral fit to sup­port a foun­da­tion that pro­vides free ac­com­mo­da­tion to fam­i­lies when they have to travel far from home to ob­tain spe­cial­ist med­i­cal care for their sick child.

The club will con­trib­ute to the house fi­nan­cially by rais­ing money through the ded­i­ca­tion of a RMH home game.

It will also take part in the Cen­tral Park Plunge and shake tins at other events through­out the year.

Perth will also pro­vide sup­port in the form of player vol­un­teer­ing, cook­ing meals for the fam­i­lies and host­ing unique kids’ events at both the foot­ball club and at the house.

To­gether they hope to pro­vide a safe and com­fort­able en­vi­ron­ment where the whole family can stay and thrive to­gether for the du­ra­tion of their child’s treat­ment.
