The Dan Sheppard Cup - #dansnotdoneyet

15th Jun 2016 'Cilla Arnold


Last Friday we descended upon Wentworth Park in Glebe under clear blue skies for The Dan Sheppard Cup. It was an absolutely amazing turnout and we'd like to thank you all for your ongoing support and for making Friday the huge success it was. Over 250 people came down and either played football or got stuck right into the raffle, t-shirt and wristband stall and of course, the bar! eBay were the overall winners, beating Yahoo7 in the final match.

A special thank you to the grounds, Sportworx, Quantcast, to all of our raffle donations and all involved behind the scenes for working so hard to get this organized in just a matter of days. A huge thank you to Lynne from Arsenal football club for the truly special gift which Dan now has proudly hung in his living room!

The final fundraising tally isn't in yet, but we’re looking in the tens of thousands...

An update on Dan can be found over on his fundraising page and more pictures of the day on our Facebook page.

If you’d still like to purchase a t-shirt or wristband you can do so here!
