Skipper's Shave: $50k before Friday

On behalf of everyone at the Bombers, my thoughts are currently with all those who have been affected by the bushfire crisis.

I’d also like to acknowledge the firefighters, volunteers and emergency service workers who are putting their own lives on the line.

Being a proud Gippy boy, I have felt particularly distressed about what is happening to our beautiful land and people’s homes, as well as our wildlife affected in the area.

All funds from the campaign will be donated to the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund and Wildlife Victoria.

While there is still plenty to be done collectively, we all want to help in any way we can – big or small. So, I’m finally going to shave the locks off to try to raise $50k this week.

The highest donor can come out to The Hangar this Friday, grab the clippers and do the honours. I’m calling on our awesome members and supporters to donate as much or as little as they can.

To everyone who has been impacted by the fires, please continue to stay safe. We’re all behind you. And to everyone who can donate, please dig deep.
