A collection of media personalities took on the ActewAGL All Stars in a charity match to raise money for Lifeline Canberra.

A charity basketball match between ActewAGL All Stars and a Media team has netted $900 for crisis support and suicide prevention charity Lifeline Canberra.

The All Stars dominated the match as 12 baskets were scored, with $50 passed onto Lifeline Canberra for each shot which went in. Unfortunately, no $100 3 pointers were scored despite the referee and Caps Man making attempts in addition to the players.

The star studded All Stars were led by crowd favorite Cal Bruton while 104.7’s Joe Gleeson was strong for the Media Team.

ActewAGL Marketing and Corporate Affairs Director Paul Walshe says there was plenty of fun and banter on the day.

“I’m the first to admit I was there to make up the numbers. But, Cal Bruton and Ross Solly kept us all entertained with their Harlem Globetrotters style antics and importantly we raised $900 for Lifeline.”

A $900 cheque will be presented to Lifeline Canberra. ActewAGL provided $600 from the 12 baskets scored during the match while Basketball ACT chipped in a further $300.
