Adam’s big day out with the ‘Pies

Adam, one of our participants, ticked off a big bucket list item when he attended the first public training session of his beloved Magpies since the COVID pandemic began.

Not only did Adam get a signed guernsey, he met several of his favourite players including Captain Scott Pendlebury, three AFLW players, Senior Coach Nathan Buckley and former Captain and Collingwood great Nick Maxwell, who now holds a leadership role at the club.

It was also a great day off school for young ‘Pies fan Axel, son of our Service Coordinator Justine. Bucks told Axel he’d get a game ‘with a mullet like that’.

Our heartfelt thanks to Annie and the Collingwood FC Community Team for making it happen for Adam, who is terminally ill.
