VAFA SEASON SUSPENDED AGAIN
COVID has struck again with Saturday’s top four clash with Whitefriars at Toorak Park cancelled.
All community sport in Victoria was put on hold from midnight Thursday with a five day statewide lockdown due to end at midnight Tuesday.
The season was due to resume this Saturday following last Saturday’s July 10 bye weekend.
Hopefully training can resume next Wednesday and the competition can continue on Saturday week.
The fate of the round 13 fixture is still to be decided by the VAFA Board.
Unfortunately it also means the end to a planned RSN carnival broadcast of the match from 1pm to 5 pm.
STATE BANK 1990 PREMIERSHIP RE-UNION CANCELLED AGAIN
UNFORTUNATELY the 1990 VAFA State Bank premiership team re-union planned for Toorak Park on Saturday has been cancelled again.
Stay tuned for any new arrangements.
LIGHTHOUSE FOUNDATION/ BREAK THE PATTERN
FOR more than 20 years Prahran Football Club has adopted the been a Lighthouse Foundation as its charity of choice. Lighthouse supports under privileged, homeless and abused children.
Formerly based in Prahran, its offices are now in Adelphi St, Richmond.
This is the latest awareness initiative from Lighthouse.
“In meaningful collaboration, Lighthouse Foundation has partnered with iconic artists, Ken Done and Cassie Byrnes, to create a campaign that uses bright and colourful ART to help spread awareness and #BREAKTHEPATTERN of youth homelessness. For a small but impactful donation, you can support vulnerable kids in Australia by downloading their ‘Cobalt’ Reef’ and ‘Basalt’ prints as limited-edition screensavers and digital backgrounds today. It's simple:
Cassie and Ken’s intricate and patterned artworks, with their repeated shapes and stokes, provides something visually beautiful to look at, but they may also make you think about other patterns you see in the world. At Lighthouse, we are reminded of the 44,000 homeless kids in Australia who have often experienced patterns of violence, abuse and neglect throughout their young lives leading them to homelessness.
Without our charity’s intervention, therapeutic support and safe homes, these negative patterns would often continue. Because when a child learns dysfunctional behaviour, they absorb it and teach it to their own children, until there are generations of people who have learned these behaviours. This is a pattern we encounter daily at Lighthouse, and when we welcome a new vulnerable young person into our care, it’s our mission to give them the skills to leave their own positive mark in the world – to create a healthy pattern for them to pass on.
But, we can only #BREAKTHEPATTERN of youth homelessness with your support. So please help us today by donating, downloading and displaying these iconic Australian artworks across all of your devices.
