Eastern Suburbs Football Association side Pagewood Botany FC will be honouring its passionate Life Member and former President, the late George Lundy as part of its Annual Fundraising Day this Saturday 15th of May at Jellicoe Park.
Friday 14th of May marks the one-year anniversary of the sad passing of George Lundy, a legend at the club who gave his all for his beloved Pagewood Botany FC side.
In what’s been billed as a historic event by the club and its members, its Jellicoe Park facilities and fields will be renamed after the great man himself namely ‘The George Lundy Sporting Fields’, which will be unveiled by the Lundy Family as well as members of Bayside Council this Saturday.
There will also be a ‘George Lundy Charity Shield’ up for grabs in the club’s first grade match-up to be played at 3:30pm.
The Lundy Family have chosen a personal choice for the charity assisting in Pagewood Botany’s Fundraising Day, the ‘Mark Grundy Oesophageal Cancer Awareness Group’.
The day will be supported by avid club sponsors Windgap Foundation and the Heartbeat of Football, both of which were closely supported by George and the club.
George’s true passion was to give back to the community especially to those in need and were less fortunate.
In a fitting tribute by the club, Saturday the 15th of May will be all about celebrating the life of George Lundy along with its amazing football community.
A full day of events has been scheduled with MiniRoos and Junior matches set to kick off the day with special games organised as the Lundy family take on the Windgap Warriors, while the Reserve and Senior Men’s teams will round up what will be a great day for the sport.
