“My name is Georgie Furze I am 27 years old from Manly . On Friday 10th July 2020 at 6pm I am going to walk for 24 consecutive hours to raise money for people struggling within The Northern Beaches Community and also for Mental health. Donations will be split between the two.

It has broken my heart to see so many businesses suffer due to this virus and mental health is something that I have always felt really strongly about. I want to do something for the community. My biggest passion In life is helping people, caring for others and fitness – If I’m not walking the beach, you will usually find me at the gym.

Any amount no matter how small will make a huge difference and help me get to my goal. I also have 24 , 1 hour time slots available (sponsor me) I will be walking with 24 different people, these people will walk with me for 1 hour – share their story, maybe they just might be there to support me or maybe this person will want to promote their small business that is now struggling due to the virus. These 24 interviews will all be filmed via GoPro and live streamed. This money is going to change lives and save lives, I can’t do it alone – I need your help. Please support me on my 24 hour walk for The Beaches Community & help me save those in need. Please help me Change a life & Save a life.”

Forest Rugby Club Gives Big to Community Northern Beaches!

ForestRugbyClub.jpg

The Forest Rugby Club Charity day was a terrific success both on and off the field. On the field, Forest’s results on the day, including the all important first grade, saw them win promotion to the Kentwell Cup for season 2020. A number of teams are competing in the upcoming finals series and Community Northern Beaches wishes them all the best. Go Forest!

Off the field a ‘mad’ auction of the specially designed Charity Day jersey saw over $20,000 raised! No doubt the euphoria of the Wallabies beating the All Blacks, coupled with ample celebratory liquid amber
contributed to the success of the bidding. In addition a further $4000 was raised from a raffle conducted at the ground, and a further $670 in sponsorship was contributed from player Carl Kilbourne, who dragged his body along the City to Surf route the following day.

A framed Forest Charity Day jersey now sits proudly at Community Northern Beaches’ Centre in Manly. We would like to thank Forest Rugby for its continuing initiatives to support community organisations such as ours, which have raised well in excess of $100,000 over the last few years. As a community rugby club their efforts are truly inspiring.
