Supporter’s act of generosity helps our club by $5000

posted in: News, Sponsors, Volunteers, Women

Cambridge FC’s efforts to maintain its facilities have received a $5,000 boost, thanks to the help of supporter Lynn Gunn.

Lynn, the grandmother of women’s first team player Astrid Howarth (pictured), recently won an in-store promotion at Te Awamutu’s Mitre 10 MEGA store in which she received $5000 of gift vouchers.

The promotion also included the opportunity for Lynn to choose a community organisation to benefit, also to the tune of $5000 in gift vouchers.

Knowing the amount of good it would do for granddaughter Astrid and her fellow senior and junior players, Lynn asked that the voucher be given to Cambridge FC.

Already, club facilities manager Craig Clark has used some of the Mitre 10 store credit to build a new storeroom and to put final touches to the re-panelled kitchen at the senior clubrooms. The rest will offset repairs and maintenance spent at our club through the coming season.

Our club says a big thanks to Lynn!
