Louisa Zupan and Caroline Betts cheer on the North Launceston Bombers at Aurora Stadium.FOOTBALLS were flying during a family fun day hosted at Aurora Stadium on Saturday for Down Syndrome Tasmania.
The event, run by Launceston St Kilda Supporters Group and Northern Bombers Football Club, saw children with Down syndrome and their parents treated to a full VIP experience during the Launceston versus Hobart TFL match.
It was the eighth annual event for the group, which also saw entertainment from St Kilda’s very own “Saint Trevor” mascot.
Supporters group president Robert Anderson said a skills workshop was taking place on the oval during half-time with the children and the Bombers’ development squad.
“We’re going along fine, we’ve got a dozen or so children with their parents and our St Kilda Supporters Club members,” Mr Anderson said.
“There’s a total of close-on 30 people up here in the Aurora function centre, where we’re entertaining everyone.”
He said some families travelled from Deloraine and the North-West Coast to attend the occasion, which saw footballs and AusKick bags full of goodies handed out to the excited children.
“This event just seems to get bigger and bigger each year and we sincerely thank all the long-term sponsors who make it all possible,” Mr Anderson said.
He said the Bombers allowed them to use the corporate function room free of charge.
