They include:

  • Assisting past football participants who may have fallen on hard times
  • Providing support and assistance to the families of past and present football participants who have passed on or need their support
  • Assisting current football participants to realise their potential and participation in the game

If you are someone who needs assistance to get through some hard times, or know of anyone who needs assistance, please contact us using either of the following forms:

Below are some of the stories of the people we have been honoured to assist.

Josh Ellery Fund

Budgewoi Football club has commenced a Benefit Fund for Josh Ellery, a senior player who has played his entire career at the Club, and is also a hard working club volunteer off the playing pitch. Josh, who is due to be married in a few weeks, suffered a very badly broken leg in a recent match which has finished his playing career, and left him unable to work.

He and his fiancee, have recently purchased a new home and were in the position of needing assistance to help pay their bills and living expenses.

The Management Committee elected to make a donation of one thousand dollars ($1000.00) to Josh's Benefit Fund, and following approval from MOF
 National Body the payment has now been made.

We wish Josh a very quick recovery, and he and his fiancee all the best in their future marriage.
