Redlands Rugby Union Club has stepped up its fundraising efforts as it looks to put the under 15 boys team on a plane to Argentina later this year.
So far the club has raised more than $40,000 through things like barbeques, bottle donations and meat tray raffles.
The golden oldies, a 40-strong group of older footballers, have been instrumental in the fundraising efforts, and are leading the way in the club's 40th year.
Julia Andrews, whose son Fletcher will be touring with the under 15 side, said the team appreciated the support shown by everyone at the club, particularly the older members of the playing group.
"Some of the golden oldies have really stepped up to help out with all the fundraising," she said.
"Last week they sacrificed an entire Saturday to cook an incredibly big and tasty American barbecue.
"They are a good bunch of community-minded people. They don't mind mucking in and volunteering their time.
"They're really important role models for the younger ones."
Team manager Vicky Ngere said the team shared a strong bond, with many players catching up away from the football field.
She said the fundraising effort had been a testament to the club's culture.
"We've got a few key parents in there driving the fundraisers," Ms Ngere said.
"Then there's the old boys and the club itself, they're just pushing every little bit they can.
"They've managed to raise $40,000 in a short space of time."
The club's Containers For Change account is still open for donations and can be found using the code C10003404.
The club will also hold a trivia night on July 20 to raise more funds for the team.
