Our 2017 Best on Ground award goes to Heywood Rural Health, who provided one of our favourite Footy Colours Day photos of the year.
An aged care facility, Heywood Rural Health got in the spirit of Footy Colours Day and showed that people of all ages can get involved and wear their team’s colours with pride.
“Footy Colours Day was celebrated at Heywood Rural Health this year due to a staff member having a close young relative recently being diagnosed with leukaemia. The staff and residents dressed in their colours and we had a footy themed morning tea of party pies and sausage rolls. The local businesses got behind the cause and donated items along with most AFL clubs for a raffle,” said Donna Carter, Activities Staff Member.
In a truly inspiring performance, Heywood Rural Health raised $1,232 to help young learners continue with their education.
