‘Big Freeze on the C’ Takes Place 9th June
Event features three AFL London fixtures, and Clapham Cubs Junior Session
June 1, 2018 – On the 9th June, the Wandsworth Demons are hosting their third annual ‘Big Freeze on the C’ to raise money for Australian charity FightMND. The event will feature three matches, with the Demons taking on the London Swans in the AFL London Women’s Conference, Men’s Conference and Men’s Premiership.
“The Big Freeze on the C is quite a personal cause for many of our members,” said Wandsworth Demon President Xavier Holland, “With a number of them having personal experience with friends and relatives who have suffered from MND.
“It was set up by one of our former members Gaby Duncan, but in just a couple of years it has grown into us raising over A$12,000 last year. To have the club come together to support and raise funds for FightMND is something we are very proud of!”
During half-time in the final game, there will also be the opportunity for children and juniors to enjoy a session with the Clapham Cubs, London’s first Junior Australian Football Club.
There will also be plenty of FightMND merchandise on sale, along with a bar, bake sale, ice dunking and a raffle with prizes including a signed Melbourne Demons jersey and a Sherrin football.
For those looking to join in the fun, the games kick off at 12pm and continue on until 6pm. Organisers are hoping for a great day of footy, and all for a good cause.
FightMND is a registered not-for-profit Australian health promotion charity. They are Australia’s leading independent Motor Neurone Disease (MND) foundation focused on funding large-scale, collaborative research, clinical trials, and improved care for all Australians living with MND.
