Organised by CSU Football Club and Bathurst Headspace, the Headspace cup has now completed its third year, with organisers exceeding goals with more than $13,000 raised over the weekend.
CSUFC President Callum Cauduro spoke about the achievements from everyone involved saying “The weekend was a huge success, with all clubs getting on board with the event. We received donations from spectators, players, clubs, BDF and BDRA. Panorama FC were exceptional this year, hosting a head shave which raised a total of $5,070 for Headspace.”
Headspace Bathurst was on hand, helping out with the main events on Sunday. There was a marquee set up at the fields, selling Headspace merchandise along with running a BBQ with all proceedings going towards Headspace.
President Cauduro and other CSUFC committee members were aiming to reach at least $10,000 with all hands on deck throughout the events processes. “Our target for this year was $10,000, which we achieved after raising a total of $13,106.80” he said.
Each year CSUFC continue to increase their donations, with clear improvements being made. In 2016, the first year of Headspace cup, over $2000 was raised. The following year in 2017 there was a significant increase with the club raising $5000.
Peter Piccini-Lulham a member of CSU Football Club’s 4th grade side was impressed with the donations made by his team saying “the 4th grade boys really rallied for the cause with one of our boys donating $100 and others contributing as well.”
The overall Headspace cup tallied 9 games, ending in a very close finish, with the BDF taking out the title winning a total of 5 games to CSU’s 4.
