Unfortunately, we’ve had to postpone this event for a second time. First it was flooded out by rain. This time, the current escalation in the COVID situation means that we’ve decided to defer it again. Stay tuned for an update on the new date for this important event in coming weeks!
Western Suburbs District Cricket Club is hosting a special event in early 2022 (date TBC). We are proud to announce our Clubs partnership with the Allison Baden-Clay Foundation to raise awareness of domestic violence in our community.
The Wests Bulldogs will be hosting a gala day of T20 Cricket with our 1st and 2nd Grade Teams battling it out with the Gold Coast Dolphins while at the same time joining forces to promote the awareness of domestic violence. It combines a wonderful day with our Club Sponsors and our past players all attending in support of the Club and this wonderful partnership.
Importantly, the Allison Baden-Clay Foundation was launched in late 2015 in honour of Allison Baden-Clay who was murdered at the hands of her husband. The Foundation aims to aid prevention of domestic and family violence through education. All funds raised for the Foundation go towards the development of programs that educate the community of the signs of domestic and family violence, as well as the tactics they can use to intervene safely and effectively. The Foundation also promotes kindness as its core value, a trait which Allison was known for. Through our work The Foundation aims to spread the message of kindness throughout Australia; because if we were all kind to each other, problems such as domestic and family violence would cease to exist.
