Brisbane Lions visit Alexandra Hills Australian Football Club days after breast cancer fundraiser

JUNIOR and youth teams from Alexandra Hills Australian Football Club were put their paces by senior Brisbane Lions players Jarrod Berry and Hugh McCluggage last week.

The popular training culminated in a photograph and autograph session.

Just days before, on Mother’s Day, the club treated mums and raised money for breast cancer.

The Alex Hills U12s took on Ferny Grove in a tight contest that saw the game hang in balance until the last few minutes.

The Alex Hills boys donned pink jerseys and pink armbands for the match to raise funds for breast cancer.

Local businesses helped support the event through donations of pink cupcakes, scones and warm drinks, with a portion of each sale going to the Cancer Foundation.

Many mothers were among the winners of the club raffle and families enjoyed a sausage sizzle.

Boys and girls aged from five to 16 can give the Bombers club a try for up to four weeks before committing.

Under 12 teams train on Monday and Wednesday from 5pm to 6pm and under 11 on Friday from 5pm to 6pm.
