Footy Fever well and truly hit Morrows on the Thursday before the AFL Grand Final, with staff and invited clients celebrating the AFL Grand Final. Guest’s were encouraged to come clad in their favourite teams colours and enjoy some entertainment.
We had some amazing presenters, including Gareth Andrews from Life Again, Gareth played for Geelong and was a Richmond Premiership player and now runs the organisation Life Again which offers support for Mental Health issues. We were also fortunate to host the hilarious comedy stylings of Tom Siegert ‘The Suburban Footballer’, followed by Football’s cult songmeister Greg Champion.
It was a pleasure for us to be associated with the Life Again Foundation and to raise funds for the cause. Life Again was created by Gareth Andrews to encourage men to talk about their issues, in particular at times when their lives may feel empty and lacking direction. This is often felt around retirement from work or profession and can develop into severe mental illness. Gareth, a Morrows client, had a wonderful VFL/AFL career playing with Geelong and Richmond resulting in a premiership at the Tigers. Already a life member at Geelong Football club, Gareth also received a life membership from Richmond Football Club at the premiership function the night before the event.
