Avoca FC's annual charity weekend will be held on the 1st and 2nd of August. This year we will be raising money for Central Coast Kids in Need Inc.

Central Coast Kids in Need are a small volunteer group who raise money to provide financial assistance to families of seriously ill Central Coast children who are require to go to Sydney / Newcastle hospitals for treatment, paying their accommodation and travel expenses. Central Coast Kids in Need also, where possible, assist with specialised equipment for quality of life for these seriously ill children deemed possible in special circumstances by their board and committee members.

On the charity weekend, all Avoca FC competition teams will be playing in green socks. The socks will be available at the canteen at Erina from this weekend, or by contacting Justine, our equipment manager (see website for contact details). Socks will cost $10 a pair with profits going directly to Central Coast Kids in Need.

If any non-comp teams would like to participate, they may also purchase socks.

We would like to encourage our supporters to wear green that weekend also.

Central Coast Kids in Need also require donations in kind, so if you are able to donate any of the following items, please bring them to the canteen on the charity weekend:

  • Stationary: Envelopes- A4 size plus DL non window.
  • Copy paper
  • Stamps for postage.
  • Petrol Cards
  • $25 Fuel cards/vouchers.
