Christchurch Football Club’s annual Club Day
Saturday May 20th is the Christchurch Football Club’s annual Club Day at Christchurch Park (Westminster St) and this year they will also be helping raise funds for Camp Quality Christchurch.
The CFC is the oldest rugby club in NZ and second oldest in the world. For the first time in over 150 years of existence the senior teams will replace their traditional red and black colours with a specially designed blue and black Camp Quality top.
The Senior Men’s Division 1 team will be playing their traditional rivals Linwood for the appropriately named “Crying Towel” - one trophy neither side wants to hold. The Club Day sees all six senior teams playing at home and a large crowd is expected.
All playing tops will be available to purchase via auction and Camp Quality volunteers will be shaking buckets during the matches. A sports memorabilia auction has been organised with some of the prizes donated by Dan Carter, Ross Taylor and Faf du Plessis.
A huge thank you goes to one of our current companions, Steve Bree, who has driven this idea over the last couple of years and deserves recognition for his commitment to the work Camp Quality does.
If anyone from the CQ family is available to help on the day with this awesome event, please get in touch with Damian Young, Regional Manager Christchurch via the website https://www.campquality.org.nz/contact/
