In an amazing gesture by Northern Suburbs Football Association’s Kissing Point FC has come the news that the club’s long serving Canteen Manager Tineke Millard along with long-time club volunteer Rhondda Shaw did their bit to assist families in need by donating food and home cooked meals to the “One Meal” Charity recently.
The idea came about after food that was ordered for one of the club’s major Friday night gatherings was cancelled due to the season finishing following the rise of Covid cases across Greater Sydney.
Quick thinking from both Millard and Shaw saw the dynamic duo clear out the fridge and freezer where they took the food back to their homes, with the help of their families, they cooked up everything and donated it to the ‘One Meal’ charity.
As a result, ‘One Meal’ distributed more than 100 hot meals to the vulnerable people in Darlinghurst and Surry Hills in early August.
The beautiful gesture was heeded and promoted by many in the football community as the club opened their hearts to a number of people doing it tough during these unprecedented days for the many vulnerable out in Sydney.
Kissing Point FC’s neighbours West Pymble FC followed a similar approach and did something similar that same weekend.
The duo are known to be huge ambassadors at the club, having spent well over 20 years assisting the Kissing Point FC in many ways donating their time, energy and support.
Football NSW would like to congratulate both ladies on their proactive approach in making this happen, spreading smiles in tough times and promoting feel good news stories such as this is definitely what the people of NSW needed, further showcasing how powerful and unique our remarkable volunteers are in our sport.
