Woodville-West Torrens players have been displaying their community spirit by working as a team off the field for a good cause.
On Saturday March 3, the Eagles came together to build a Cubby House and conduct other renovations at the Torrensville Child and Family Centre.
A joint-initiative with Uniting Care Wesley Bowden, the project also included the painting of external walls and fences, replacing doors and repairing retaining walls.
Speaking on SANFL Radio, Eagles star Matt Goldsworthy said the players relished the opportunity to roll up the sleeves for those in need.
Players also donated to the project which was also supported by an array of sponsors such as Zancott Recruitment, Barry Stoodley Pty Ltd, T&A Carpentry, Ecowise Plumbing, Villi’s, BCE Electrical & Data and Bunnings.
TCFC Director, Deanne Sergiacomo, said the work has significantly improved the educational environment for the children who attend the East
“The Cubby Fort will be a popular addition to our playspaces and will add considerably to the home-like environment at the TCFC which caters to up to 77 children of all ages up to six
years,” Deanne said.
UCWB Executive Manager, Social Services and Innovation, David Couzner, said the TCFC Community Makeover Day is the result of Woodville West Torrens Football Club’s desire to
give back to the community in a way that will improve the lives and educational learning environment for children.
“Players have agreed to donate their personal time and skills to undertake important and much-needed and significant improvements for the TCFC none more important than the
purchase and installation of a Cubby Fort for the children,” David said.
“UCWB has been fortunate to secure significant donations which have allowed the organisation to conduct the day and improve the learning environment.”
