Thornleigh Thunder Under16’s will again travel to Fiji this year. From previous tours, we know that the team members will gain enormously from the trip as it makes them appreciate the opportunities we have at home and help people less fortunate than themselves. The team will play 3 games in Fiji.
International travel and touring is expensive. It is likely to cost around $2,400 for each player to go overseas and we are currently raising funds for the team, so that it costs each family in the order of $1,500.
To raise funds, the team is running a weekly BBQ at Ruddock Park, having a bottle donation drive, selling chocolates and we are organising a Trivia Night as our major fundraiser for 22nd July at Thornleigh West Public School hall.
If you cannot attend we welcome donations to Fiji Thunder BSB 012 373 Account 304521681 .
A donation of $5 or $10 will go a long way to helping with costs of the tour.
The team of 16 players is made of players from our Division 2 and 3 teams. To date both teams have
not been beaten after 7 rounds of soccer in 2017 and both head their respective competitions.
