The Tigers rested up this week and did some fundraising towards an “Injured Players Fund” at the grand opening of Emerald Carpet Court and Harvey Norman. Tigers mens and ladies members ran a sausage sizzle over 2 days and raised a healthy amount to kick start this fund.
This fund is designed to assist seriously injured players when they are unable to work. This money will be a great help to players to assist with bills like car registrations, rent, weekly food etc. The payment amount and frequency will be determine on a case by case basis.
Massive thanks has to go to Coles Emerald for donating the sausages over the weekend. It was a huge help to not have to outlay the money for such an amount of sausages. Thanks Guys.
So we rest up for our next home game against Middlemount next week.
