In my role as a councillor and Deputy Mayor I get the opportunity to meet some amazing members of our local community. It is a privilege to meet so many volunteers and groups that contribute to the improvement of society.

A group that I have had the pleasure of having some involvement with is the South Road Cricket Club (based at Edwardstown Oval). Over the course of a few years, the club has strengthened their financial position and increased memberships.

At the same time, the club started extensive fundraising. This fundraising was not to support their own operations, but to support charity. The club has focused on a few charities, including the Leukemia Foundation and the Flinders Medical Centre Paediatric Clinic. This charity work has strengthened the team ethic amongst members and also translated to on-field success.

I recently attended the Adelaide and Suburban Cricket Association Twenty/20 Grand Final. Not only did South Road win the grand final, but they also raised approximately $6000 on the day for the Leukemia Foundation. Over the last few years these guys have raised many thousands for numerous charities, while also improving on field. I commend their brilliant efforts, which are making a real difference in the community. Go the Roads!!
