Intercol Touch Football Gala to raise funds for bush charity

St Paul’s will host a Touch Football Gala Tournament on the St Paul’s College Oval on Friday 15 September from 3 pm as a fund raiser. This intercollegiate event will support the non-for-profit charity ‘Boys to the Bush’ provides boys from disadvantaged backgrounds the opportunity to participate in camps where they are surrounded by positive influences that help them to maintain resilience, feel a sense of belonging and ultimately learn how to be a good man.

Alumni, parents: can you help? Need are a range of prizes for the raffle – all proceeds going to charity. Please contact Richard Morgan in the Community and Advancement Office (community@stpauls.edu.au).

All are welcome to come along from 3 pm to cheer on the teams, sausage sizzle, drinks and college bands The Dirty Dishes and Salted Ham perfoming from 5 pm to 7 pm. 

As a university student residing at St Paul’s College, the oldest residential college in the country which until this year was a male-only environment; I understand the importance of providing young men the important opportunity to learn how to be a good man and treat each other and their female counterparts with respect.

Each year, St Paul’s hosts an intercollegiate charity event, raising money for an organization of the colleges choice to give back to the community. This year, I proposed ‘Boys to the Bush’ as the charity in which we support.

St Paul’s understands the importance in giving back to those from disadvantages backgrounds and raising money for a charity that is playing such an important role in the lives of so many young boys within NSW and the rest of Australia.
